Sjoerd Bax: “I’m of course very happy to join UAE Team Emirates and curious how much I can improve with the support from one of the best teams in the world and riding alongside the best teammates.”



Mauro Gianetti (Team Principal & CEO) : “Bax has shown a steady progression over the past years with a particularly good 2022 campaign behind him, and we hope he can continue to show more of what he has to offer with us over the coming seasons.”
