阿联酋航空车队年轻阵容挑战东双海赛(Adriatica Ionica race)
UAE Team Emirates are set to send a seven man squad to partake in the second edition of the Adriatica Ionica Race (2.1), which runs from July 24 to 28.
The team will be guided by Marco Marzano (Ita) and Paolo Tiralongo (Ita):
– Roberto Ferrari (Ita)
– Sebastian Molano (Col)
– Manuele Mori (Ita)
– Rui Oliveira (Por)
– Jan Polanc (Slo)
– Aleksandr Riabushenko (Blr)
– Rory Sutherland (Aus)
The race will open with a prologue of 2.7 km in Mestre, before an opportunity for the sprinters on stage 2 with the overall battle likely to be decided with the uphill finish to Misurina Lake on stage 3. The final two days finish in Cormons and Trieste, which both run over rolling terrain.
Sports Director Marco Marzano laid out the team’s ambitions for the race: “We’ll start our Adriatica Ionica Race focusing on the quality of riders like Polanc and Riabushenko and then for the flatter sprint stages on Ferrari and Molano, with the support of Rui Oliveira. Our veterans Mori and Sutherland will add their valuable experience to a mostly youthful team“.
