Finally they have arrived.   "These trading cards will be worth almost nothing someday." - T. Skujins. Nevertheless, this my first signed item from an actual Olympian.  

The start of the 2021 Tour de France has been brought forward to 26 June to allow cyclists to take part in the Tokyo Olympics with its Mount Fuji road race.

Last year the Tour of Israel was mysteriously cancelled, this year the 'Tel Aviv Classic' died a slow death and just disappeared :lol: 

 

 

Oh Israel, stop making a mess of stuff. Deservedly in this case by the way, any new race that calls itself a 'Classic' should be automatically cancelled.

Honestly never heard of it no one ever wrote about here in any Israeli website so it’s weird some of the things in this report are false or misleading tbh I searched in all of the Israeli websites and found absolutely nothing also included the link of the Israeli cycling website https://israelcycling.org.il/  all the website about those contests are foreign-non Israeli and in order to have cycling competition in Israel you need the Sport administration acceptance which is a thing that never even brought up in government websites so yeah it’s a bit ?? (fishy)

Well, I highly doubt well-known cycling websites are all in an anti-Israel conspiracy and making things up :d So most likely it's some Israeli organizers who thought it'd be easy to have a race after the start of the Giro in Jerusalem (possibly without even involving the Israeli cycling federation) and then it all just died a slow death two years in a row.

Yep it’s reasonable and make sense after a lot of time without any hosting of large sporting events a lot of individuals and groups are trying to bring some events to Israel and while “Tel Aviv classic “ is a cocky name and organizing a competition like this would have probably cause a mess so I Admit it’s not the best idea but I’m happy with the increase of sporting events that taking place in Israel (but only if they got proper names?

Here we go again. Chokri Elmehdi of Morocco had signed a contract with Israel Cycling Academy after rumours had been going on for a while. First Arab Muslim rider for the team, awesome! 

 

Few days later aaaaaand to the surprise of absolutely nobody, he has left the team due to 'personal reasons'. Most likely the Moroccan Cycling Federation, which had pretty much never supported him in any way, suddenly was 'a little interested', asked some questions and got rather angry, more or less forcing him to sign for some lower level French team.

 

Ahmet Örken all over again :facepalm:
