Two UAE contract renewals: Rui Costa & Rory Sutherland
Much experience and the class of the former world champion confirmed in UAE Team Emirates
The two contract renewals add to the robust UAE Team Emirates structure for the 2019 season. Rui Costa and Rory Sutherland (photos Bettini) reached an agreement with the team to continue their experience with the WorldTour team from the United Arab Emirates.
The Portuguese world champion from the 2013 Worlds, Rui Costa, suffered this season due to knee problems that are now all cleared by the medical team. He added another season to the already five-year run with the team.
Australian Rory Sutherland, 36 years old, will be reaching his 17th season. This year, he rode the Tour de France and helped the team to two stage wins, one with Dan Martin and one with Alexander Kristoff. Sutherland also signed for one year.
