Yousif Mohamed Ahmed Mirza Al-Hammadi (Arabic: يوسف محمد احمد ميرزا الحمادي‎‎) (born 8 October 1988) is an Emirati cyclist who has won multiple national titles as well as winning the silver medal in the road race at the 2015 Asian Cycling Championships, qualifying him for the 2016 Summer Olympics in Brazil.
He was the first Emirati cyclist to compete in the Olympic Road Race.
After his team Al Nasr Pro Cycling Team–Dubai disbanded at the end of the 2016 season, he joined the UAE Team Emirates team for 2017, becoming the first Emirati to ride for a UCI WorldTeam.


Mirza is breaking records in Middle Eastern cycling and is playing an important part in inspiring a new generation of cyclists in the United Arab Emirates.


It all began when Yousif was 11 years old and he wanted to get into cycling, following in the footsteps of his brother Badr, who was 4 years older than him.
His cycling idol is Contador and he has struck up a friendship with Cavendish, since the Brit often trains in the United Arab Emirates, sometimes even with Yousif.


Like all cyclists, he knows how to suffer and give it his all when he’s on the saddle; but once he’s off the bike he particularly likes shopping and cars, and he believes there is nothing better than spending time playing with his son.
