The UAE Team Emirates remains in Spain for its second appointment in Europe, participating in the Volta a la Comunitat Valenciana, February 6 to 10.
The sports directors Neil Stephens (Aus) and Bruno Vicino (Ita), supported by Paolo Tiralongo (Ita) will guide these seven riders:
Rui Costa (Por)
Alexander Kristoff (Nor)
Marco Marcato (Ita)
Daniel Martin (Irl)
Manuele Mori (Ita)
Edward Ravasi (Ita)
Aleksandr Riabushenko (Bel)
On his season debut, Rui Costa said, “I’m really happy to start another season as a cyclist. I worked hard over the winter, with renewed enthusiasm and high morale after I found some good form in the final of 2018.
In the Volta a la Comunitat Valenciana, I will have the chance to see how my legs respond to the race’s rhythm and find that spark needed for the following races“.
The Spanish race unfolds over five stages: the starting stage will be a 10.2km time trial, the following three days will be undulating and the final stage suits sprinters.
