UAE Team Emirates: quality line-up for the Gp Quebec and Gp Montreal
Former winners Rui Costa and Ulissi return to Canada
The UAE Team Emirates team for the Canadian trip has all the credentials to bring home results at Gp Quebec (Friday, September 13) and the Gp Montreal (Sunday, September 15), both on the World Tour circuit races.
The seven riders will be directed by Neil Stephens (Aus):
– Sven Erik Bystrøm (Nor)
– Rui Costa (Por)
– Daniel Martin (Irl)
– Rui Oliveira (Por)
– Jasper Philipsen (Bel)
– Jan Polanc (Slo)
– Diego Ulissi (Ita)
Diego Ulissi, winner of the Gp Montreal 2017: “I have special memories of these races in Canada. I won in the past in Montreal, and it ‘s a race that you need to be switched on for from start to finish.
For the 2019 edition, the organisers have decided to add two laps of the race circuit, bringing the total count to 18 climbs which will therefore make it even more important to arrive in Canada with a good condition and be present as a team with as many riders as possible in the final.
The goal is to do well in these races and bring forward the condition from the Deutschland Tour.”
