UAE Team Emirates and 19-year old New Zealand rider Finn Fisher-Black have put pen to paper on a deal which will see him in the colours of UAE Team Emirates through to 2024.
Fisher-Black : “I’m really happy to be joining the UAE Team Emirates family. With such a diverse group of riders & staff it makes for a really special atmosphere that I can see myself thriving in. Stepping up to World Tour & finding my level & rhythm will take time but I hope I can contribute to the team leaders & in time, bring home some nice victories along the way as well.”
Fisher-Black, is the current New Zealand Under-23 Time Trial Champion and despite his young age, has already made waves in the professional ranks this year, recently claiming 4th place overall in the Baloise Belgium Tour (2.Pro) . He joins UAE Team Emirates immediately and is set to make his debut at the Ordizia Klasika (1.1) in Spain.
Mauro Gianetti (CEO & Team Principal) : “Finn is a very young rider with enormous talent. It’s no secret that our goal is to nurture young talents as we are doing with Pogačar, Bjerg, McNulty, Hirschi, Ayuso and so many others. We are building a team for the present but also for the future.”
