The Rolling Stones: Guy Niv's Journey Diary in the Tour de France Israel today


Special for "Israel Today": Guy Niv will jump to the fifth section of the Tour de France and a moment before he submits his first travel diary and professional preparation for what awaits today in the column

First of all, meanwhile the thing I have enjoyed most of all so far is the audience that received us in Denmark.

Anyone who has seen the days in Denmark could see what a crazy atmosphere there was, and believe me that no matter how it looked on TV, in reality it felt much more powerful.

Abnormal audience volume.

You try to talk to the rider next to you in the platoon and just fail from the noise of the crowd… A completely insane experience.

The fifth section is the stage that is supposed to be the "Paris Rifle" in the column version.

These pub ways are utterly cruel.

All the equipment for this section will be completely different - the wheels, the tires, the tire pressure.

It's not like a regular road race.

Personally - I have no experience with races of this style, so for me the goal is just to get through the first sections safely, and wait for a "Gropto" to open that I can ride relatively calmly to the finish.

As far as the team is concerned, Yaakov Fogelsang is one of the "biggest" GC riders in his dimensions, and he actually rides very well on such a stage.

I'm sure he's going to be up front, and Guillaume Biovin can also play the game in the fifth section (he finished ninth in the Paris Rifle in 2021 ..).

We will try to place them in front before the first sections, and from there the legs will speak.

Of course you also need luck on the day as well as tomorrow, and avoid punctures.

The principle says that in the center of these roads the best grip, and one should try to strive there.

On the sides there is a kind of descent and these stones are more exposed..or, try to really go as far as possible, even a kind of riding in the field, and not on this "road "..where there is more grip, but there are also more exposed to punctures.

In short - the audience is guaranteed a particularly enjoyable stage to watch.

I guess tomorrow there will already be general ranking riders who will lose time, and there will be a lot of up-and-coming action on the stage victory.

Were we wrong?
