Teams announced for late-season appointments
As the autumn calendar continues the Emirati squad will line up at the Giro di Sicilia in Southern Italy which runs from 28 September – 1 October while in Belgium the team will ride the Eurométropole Tour on 29 September.
The team for Sicilia will be headed up by Sports Directors Simone Pedrazzini (Swi) and Rubens Bertogliati (Swi) while the Eurométropole Tour will be led by Allan Peiper (Aus) and Fabio Baldato (Ita).
In Italy the team will have the reigning champion in their ranks Brandon McNulty taking the title in 2019.
Brandon McNulty : “I have really nice memories from Tour of Sicily and we’re super excited to be heading back there. It was the first pro win of my career in 2019 and looking back now it was a race that gave me a lot of confidence. I think I’ve progressed quite a bit as a rider since then and we are going in with a really strong squad so I think we can be competitive.”
