Dead sea no - that means passing occupied areas. Perhaps more a jerusalem-negav stage. And then a negav (beershava) tel aviv slong the coast. Securitywise I think Galilae & Haifa is off. And that means no likely hills18-Valve. (pithy) said:Pretty much. Original news release mentioned a TT, whereas a TTT is usually specified.Valv.Piti said:The stages in Isreal, prologue/TTT + 2 sprinter stages?
Based on the info from about a month ago it would look like this:
1. Jerusalem short ITT or prologue
2. ??? - ??? (south of Jerusalem, apparently)
3. ??? - probably Tel Aviv
Stage 2 could be a Dead Sea finish as Red Rick speculated - which would likely make it a 99.9% sure sprinter's stage - perhaps a somewhat selective one. Stage 3 would also(?) obviously be one. Stage 2 may be the only hope for some action. It would take balls, though, and I'm not convinced that Vegni has any.
