Regarding the possible entry of UAE Team Emirates into the world of women’s cycling, Team Principal Mauro Gianetti explains:
“We are pleased to announce that we are working to create a female team to compete on the world stage as part of the UAE ambition to develop cycling, in support of a global project that started back in 2017.
Together with the Alè BTC Ljubljana Team we have found the right opportunity and the availability we were looking for and, in collaboration with the UCI, we are preparing all the necessary documents for the completion of the acquisition of the World Tour license starting from 1 January 2022.
In the coming weeks we will have the definitive framework and we will be ready to present the project ”.
