Epic Israel will end an epic year for Shlomi, who has been non-stop points scoring for Olympic qualification. What better way to end than in the country that he hopes to represent? The white and blue of the Israeli National Champion’s jersey will be worn with extra pride over the next three days as Shlomi shows off his home trails to the World.
With just one day to go before the start, here’s what Shlomi has to say:
For me, after such a long season with a lot of locations, there isn’t a better way to finish than at home.
Plus, the event is taking place in the area where I live, so it’s make things much easier for me and brings me another advantage. Am I tired? I wouldn’t lie. I raced many times this year and it’s getting harder to keep my form high. However, switching to the long distance event for the last of the year gave me fresh motivation and I was able to keep with the hard work. We will rock it, clearly! My partner for the Epic Israel is Uwe Wochenwarter from Austria. We used to ride together for Focus team at 2013-2014.
We always had good connection and friendship. We both taking it easy and relax off the bike and going hard when we are on the bike. The aim: keep it simple and win!
With high spirits and high hopes it’s time to make the final preparations.
Remember to follow the team on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for all the latest news from the race.
Good luck Shlomi and Uwe!
