Israel Start-Up Nation is set to do a second Medical Aid Ride to provide more masks to hospitals in the world where they are needed.

The first medical air ride had the participation of 1500 riders in the platform Zwift, which meant that 1500 KN95 masks were donated to four hospitals in the Greater Vancouver area by the Israeli team ans its minority co-owner philanthropist Dr. Kevin Ham.

"There are shortages everywhere," said Ham. "We will certainly try to deliver one of the next shipments to places like New York.

"My wish is to see many thousands of riders around the world join us that we can not only deliver more masks but also raise awareness of the shortages that put medical health workers at risk."

The team wants to attract more riders and its sponsors are also supporting this initiative, like Factor Bikes that announced that it would handle a top racing frame to one of the participants in the Medical Aid series that will be drawn randomly. "Those rides are an excellent way to help make a difference in these challenging times," explained Factor Bike owner Rob Giles. "We are more than happy to support this initiative."

Selle Italia will give away four top-quality saddles during the second Medical Aid -which will be on Sunday, April 5 at 15:30 CET. Also, the participating riders will have the option to race from start to finish in addition to the team group ride.

The full race riders will be led by Israel Start-Up Nation's James Piccoly, Rory Sutherland and Freddy Ovett -who is part of the Continental team, while the group ride will be headed by Alex Dowsett, Andre Greipel, Guy Sagiv and Guy Niv, among others.
