This page focus on UAE Team Emirates Cycling Team 2022. The prime purpose is to link each rider to his bike review as the season goes.
Needless to present, the team that won the Tour de France 2020 and 2021 with super talented Tadej Pogacar.
With more strong riders joining this year, the team will keep its winning streak.
After hiring George Bennett, Primoz Roglic lieutenant till 2021, Jao Almeida, and Marc Soler, UAE Team Emirates Cycling Team 2022 looks like the strongest team heading the Tour de France.
Looking at the team selection for the Tour de France and La Vuelta, I think UAE will win both Grand Tours with this configuration.
The team has also fine-tuned its sprinter’s team to support Fernando Gaviria with Pascal Ackermann and Felix Groß joining.
