UAE Team Emirates commence pre-season camp, announce riders & backroom team for 2024

Team gathers in Alicante, Spain from 10-21 December

With the 2024 season already fast approaching, UAE Team Emirates are pleased to announce the riders and technical staff who will work behind the scenes for the forthcoming campaign. The team is also excited to announce the 11 young riders who will make-up the Gen Z squad which will race at a Continental level.



The base of the World Tour team remains similar to 2023 with a couple of new recruits:
The team will continue to work under the management of Mauro Gianetti (CEO & Team Principal) and Andrea Agostini (Chief Operating Officer) while the sporting side remains supervised by Matxin Fernandez (Sports Manager).



Speaking on the announcement Mauro Gianetti said “The cohesion within our team, through both riders and staff, holds significant value for us. We prioritise having both skilled and friendly individuals who excel in their respective fields. As a squad, we place great emphasis on assembling a collective of top-tier professionals, and with this exceptional group, comprising both staff and riders, we are best placed to continue our success in the years ahead.”
