The elite riders Fred Morini and Niv Libner tested the 4th stage of Tour the Israel. Starting at the Dead sea 422 meters (1,385 ft) below sea level, the lowest place on the Earth's surface on dry land. This stage qualifies as very interesting and challenging due to high altitude differences and strong winds.

Or instead of going to Israel, you could come to South Australia. Rolling roads raced and trained on by true professional cyclists, awesome wine and food, and who needs a "dead" sea when you have a choice of some of the world's greatest pristine white beaches.

TOI please keep trolling, I love having the excuse to plug South Australia:D it's heaps good.

Tour the Israel and the dead sea

Why instead if we can do them both? join us at Tour the Israel and then we will follow you to Ausralia. BTW the salty dead sea is a challenging and unique place on the globe.

And after you've visited South Australia, come to Victoria, which has equally fine roads, scenery, food, and wine, but also has the bonus of having some very fine mountain climbs that vary from the gentle and scenic to the ridiculously tough.

Stage 4 - Wednesday, March 10 :

Ein Bokek (Dead Sea) - Mitzpe Ramon: 140 km, 2,400 m climbing

Now there is no place like that on Earth!

This stage starts from 400 meter BELLOW sea level, the lowest point on earth, near the salty dead sea. From there you will pass through the Desert of the Negev and finally you will reach the high city of Mitzpe Ramon, located on the bank of the Ramon crater.


more info about this stage you can find here -

But has two main problems:

1) Its usually cold and wet

2) Its full of Victorians
