Alexys Brunel to step away from professional cycling

Promising Frenchman to take indefinite break

Alexys Brunel will put a premature end to his career as a professional cyclist to focus on other pursuits, with the 23 year old Frenchman requesting to terminate his contract with UAE Team Emirates.



Alexys Brunel : “I’d like to thank everyone at UAE Team Emirates for the opportunities and support they have given me. It’s been a pleasure to be part of this great team but it’s now time for me to turn a new page and to focus on new challenges and experiences in my life.”



Mauro Gianetti, (Team Principal & CEO) : “We still believe that Alexys has huge potential and we saw glimpses of that already in the first part of this season. But we are talking about human being and not just a bike racer and we fully accept his decision to stop his career as a professional cyclist. We wish Alexys all the best in his future endeavours.
