Israel Cycling Academy Official Partner of Istria300 in 2020

Lauren Simmonds

As Glas Istre writes on the 21st of November, 2019, Israel Cycling Academy was founded back in 2015 with the aim of developing cycling in Israel. The team is made up of members of different nationalities, winning it the support of hundreds of thousands of fans from many countries, including Croatia. They are Istria300’s official partner for 2020.

Cyclisme, a French magazine, described them in a recent cover story as the “United Colours of Israel Cycling Academy”.

Tel Aviv’s world-renowned cycling team, Israel Cycling Academy, will co-operate with the newly-launched European Cycling Event Istria300. The gathering of Istria300 cycling enthusiasts will be held in Poreč for the first time on October the 10th, 2020, with the Israeli team serving as the official partner and promoter of the event.

Although competitively successful (with an impressive 29 wins in 2019 only), they enjoy the reputation of being a friendly and open team. Istria300 event organisers Julius Rupitsch and Vladimir Miholjević aren’t hiding their enthusiasm for their partners.

“There are numerous reasons why the Israel Cycling Academy team is the perfect partner for the Istria300 event,” Rupitsch said.

“In October, we’ll welcome a thousand highly motivated and ambitious cyclists from all over the world in Istria. The Israel Cycling Academy team is known for putting together a team that will appeal to international audiences,” explained Miholjević, explaining the reasons for the cooperation. At the moment, the organisation of the team and the organisation of the events require the highest standards to be met, both for the cyclists themselves and for the sport itself.

“With this approach, we want athletes themselves and cycling itself to profit from everything to the fullest,” said Miholjević.

“This is a great opportunity to work with the organisers of the Istria300 event. We’ll be able to take part of the itineraries of the event and explore the unknown terrain for us,” said Kjell Carlström, director of the Israel Cycling Academy team.

On Saturday, October the 10th, 2020 Poreč will become the mecca of international cycling. Under the slogan “Ride Your Limits” Istria offers ideal cycling conditions and striking routes along some of the most beautiful Istrian roads and spectacular locations that will provide participants with an unforgettable cycling experience.

Pre-registrations are open on the official website until December the 6th, 2019 or until the number of up to one thousand participants is reached. So far, 600 applications from 22 different countries have been received. All participants will be able to complete their registrations from December the 6th to December the 12th at a cost of 60 euros. Regular applications will be open from December the 13th. The entry fee for regular applications is 75 euros.
