Season 2017

About the Team

The team was founded in 2016 by Maestro Erez Levin (read more his cycling achievements here), to scout new racing talents and help them develop their full racing potential. 

For that the team recruited a well experienced cycling coach Arie Mitelman (license since 1989).

The team trains mainly in Rosh Tzipor cycling park in Tel Aviv, Jerusalem Mountains and Ariel Mountains.

 

Team training sessions are based on power meters and many racing simulations and strategic racing techniques. The team is suitable for any athlete who wishes to peruse his racing potential or reach his highest level of fitness, while learning how to refrain from sporting injuries and over training. 

The team is also sponsored by Rent a Road Bike in Israel
