Calls are mounting for the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI), the governing body of cycling, to take action to relocate the start of the famed Giro d’Italia cycling race from Israel.
Race organizers RCS MediaGroup are set to cash in with a reported 10 million euro payoff from Israel to host the 2018 Giro start May 4-7.
In exchange, RCS has been actively aiding the Israeli government in falsely portraying occupied East Jerusalem as part of Israel and its “unified capital,” joining US President Donald Trump in going against the entire international community.
Let’s step up pressure on professional cycling! Join the
