Sergio Henao Montoya will join the Emirates roster for the 2019 and 2020 seasons. The team welcome the standout Colombian cyclist, who is easy to spot in his national champion jersey.
Born in Rionegro in 1987, Sergio Luis Henao Montoya is one of the best Colombian climbers. He started as a professional in 2007 and has pulled in 19 wins so far which include twice in a row the National Championship in 2017 and 2018 and the overall Paris-Nice.
His attributes suit short stage races, stages in grand tours and one-day races. He is always reliable especially in the long three-week tours like the Tour de France. A strong attribute is his eventual availability to work in support of his team-mates which Henao has shown over and over that he can live up to the task. Also in UAE Team Emirates he’ll ride alongside fellow Colombian, neo-professional Cristian Muñoz.
