Young talent Joel Suter joins UAE Team Emirates
Swiss pens deal with Emirati squad
UAE Team Emirates have finalised their roster for 2022 with 23-year old rider Joel Suter linking up to complete the 30 rider line-up on a one-year deal.
Suter hails from Frutigen, Switzerland and turned professional in 2020, spending two years at the Pro Team level with the move to UAE seeing him step-up to the World Tour. He will join-up with his new teammates on the upcoming training camp in Alicante, Spain which begins on the 5th January.
Joxean Matxin Fernandez (Team Manager) : “Joel is a proven team player who can support our big leaders in key moments. He’s strong on the flat, in time-trials and has shown that he can also perform in the medium-mountains. He is still a young rider at 23 but already has a few years experience at the professional level under his belt and has shown some of what he can do at many World Tour races already. I think he’ll slot in very well with us.”
Joel Suter: “I am very happy to be on the road next year with UAE Team Emirates. It was a dream to make this step and it’s now becoming a reality so I am over the moon and ready to start this new chapter. Next week I’ll link up with the team for the first training camp of the year so I’m already excited for that.”
