Israel Cycling Academy, le texte de sa publication du 09-08-2019 07:50:37 :


Just for a moment.

You are 23. You are talented but still raw. You believe in yourself but also aware that you are still far behind. Your country, Israel, has never produced a PRO WINNER. Actually, nobody remembers when was the last time that an Israeli Rider have stepped into a podium in a Serious UCI race.

So yesterday, at the 7th stage of Tour of Portugal, the opportunity lastly arrived.

A breakaway.

So many times He tried to get into one in this race. So many times it ended with a failure.

But here he was in. With 10 other riders. They took a six minutes gap and Omer was feeling that his biggest dream is within reach.

“I was both excited and under pressure “ he described it later.

We all shared it. From the team car to everybody in this team. Our Spanish Director Oscar Guerrero tried to calm Omer down. He recognize his talent but knew the last climb ( 1st Category) will be a hard challenge . Omer is a all around rider. He definitely can climb but he is not a pure climber.

Omer: “ We worked together in the breakaway and when it was clear that we are going to beat the peloton I was thinking: I GOT A CHANCE “!

But when he reached the climb he knew he is in trouble.

“ I was extremely fatigued. I tried to hang on with them ... really tried... I switched in to the big ring... tried e everything... I felt so dead in the end... “

It was only good for 8th. 47 seconds behind the winner.

Omer: “ I know what I have right now is not enough but I also know that a year ago there was no chance I could have done what I did today.
So I will improve. I know I will be able to reach the dream. “

“He will” said his Coach, the legend Nicki Sorensen. “It’s a matter of time. He already progressed a lot and he is not yet in peak shape. So with hard work and patience, it will come”.
