Afik Israel was launched for an 18 km prologue – running, cycling, triathlon, swimming

The duo Baum Lukas and Eger Georg (winner of Afik Israel 2019) from Germany, are the winners of the prologue stage of Afik Israel for 2021. About 600 riders lined up at the starting line in the courtyard of the Mate Asher Regional Council, for the second Galilee Knights edition of Bra Afik Israel 2021

An 18-kilometer short prologue officially opened the Israel Bus 2021 competition, the eighth edition of the Israel Bus and the second which takes place in the Western Galilee.

From the competition village, the pairs of competitors set out one minute apart in a southeasterly direction on a flat route towards the city of Acre, one of the most important and beautiful historical icons in Israel and the entire Middle East. After a quick flight along the city promenade, the riders went for a ride in the narrow alleys of the old city to the Knights’ Halls, one of the most beautiful tourist sites in Israel.

From there on a fast flight back to the competition village in Mate Asher Regional Council.
