Later today in Medellin, Colombia:

6 days against the odds at Tour Colombia 2.1

You can not blame us for going easy on our selves , that's for sure.

Because you in a few hours ( exactly 12:12 local, 18:12 CET, 19:12 israel) when our squad will start their TTT in the center of the second largest city in Colombia - It will set up huge uphill battle for the next 6 days.

6 Pro tour teams about half the pelotom made out of the best Colombians crop - will go for the jagular here. Sprinters like Gaviria or top climbers like Qinatana and Uran, not to speak off a great Sky Team headed by a guy named Chris Froome...

The task get even more complicated by the race course. Only one stage of a flat course ( besides Today's 14 Km TT). The rest are hilly although only the last two consist of big time climbs. But the altitude ( 2500 M plus in the last day) will make it even tougher.

Still, we have no plans to lay down low. We goy our best winner here, the "Viking" Mihkel Raim who like the rest of his teaamate ( excluding Israeli champ Roy Goldstein ) - spent the last 3 weeks in Colombia in a altitude camp.

" I am excited to start the season" said the Estonian Champ who in the last 3 seasons has proven his worth as ICA best sprinter. " But I want to be realistic: We did not come here with a Leadout "Train" so I will need to Make clever drcisions , improvise, and enjoy some luck to get myself a chance".

Still, Miku is not our only card here. We got our Colombiamn Edwin Avila who just finished 9th in the Colombian Nationals and can be a factor in the stages that may be too hard for the pure sprinters.

After witnessing the Colombian crowd unforgettable support in the Team presentation. the race ( all 6 stages in or arround Medellin) is promising to be another showcase of Colombia cycling power.

We will report LIVE from the Team car during this exciting race. Follow us closely.

To meet our squad, Take a look at the our special presentation clip right here .
