The Israel National Cycle Team stayed at the Low Port Outdoor Education Centre in Linlithgow for 2 weeks in preparation to racing at the European Championships in the Glasgow. The Low Port Centre was delighted to be selected as a base for the team and help support them during their visit. Members of the Israel team competed in the Elite Women’s Road Race in the City and Elite Men’s Mountain Bike event at Cathkin Brae.

The athletes were spotted by many locals throughout West Lothian, cycling around the challenging but beautiful landscape of the county. They also visited Fife Velvo Park which is similar to the proposed new West Lothian Cycle Circuit next to Xcite Linlithgow. The West Lothian Cycle Circuit project is being led by the Linlithgow Community Development Trust and supported by West Lothian Leisure, West Lothian Council and West Lothian Clarion. It is hoped that work on the circuit will begin in the Spring of 2019.

Head Coach of the Israel team, Niv Libner said ‘Scotland and the Scottish People delivered the best environment for training and racing for us. The Low Port Centre was very supportive and flexible and our race preparation was top of their concerns’.

The team took some time out from their intense training schedules to attend a Scottish Dancing and Scotch Hop event held at Low Port where they took part in the traditional festivities and were welcomed by many locals.

Robin Strang Chief Executive of WLL Xcite said ‘It’s fantastic that the services available at the Low Port Centre can be enjoyed at an international team level. It was a great experience for the staff and all those who were involved. The Israel Team were very impressed with the centre and the staff, including the nutritional meals provided. We hope that this positive stay will attract other teams and organisation to not only use the facilities but enjoy all the county has to offer.'
