Tadej Pogačar decided to extend the cooperation with UAE-Team Emirates at least until the end of 2023. Such long-term contracts are rare in cycling, so this only indicates the value of Tadej Pogačar in a cycling caravan. The demand for such a successful young rider is extremely high, so it is also in the interest of the UAE team to keep Tadej in their ranks.
Most notably, the outstanding victories of his first season and teamwork make him one of the most promising young cyclists of the world. This is also emphasized by team CEO Mauro Gianetti, who emphasizes that the team’s long-term strategy is to build a strong team with now young riders who will develop and later be able to win the main races in the world.
From his side, Tadej Pogačar would also like to thank the management of the team for the extended cooperation and especially for their trust.
