08/29/2019

The United Arab Emirates team will live its third participation in the Bretagne Classic - Ouest-France. Italian base, this formation has a beautiful passive behind her in Plouay. However, this year the ambitions will be very measured. It will be primarily to introduce the breton classic to the young team members.

For its third participation on the Bretagne Classic - Ouest-France, UAE Team Emirates will be a team to count among the outsiders of the day. Highly successful in the past, the formation of the UAE is this year without great leaders able to win. The young Jasper Philipsen should be the man protected by a collective including teammates with more than fifteen years of career behind them as Manuele Mori and Rory Sutherland, two of the few professional riders in activity to have lived the 2005 edition of the Grand Prix de Plouay marking the arrival of the biggest breton race in the circuit of the UCI WorldTour created the same season.

Founded in 2017 on the basis of the Lampre team, UAE Team Emirates has behind her a sacred liability in Plouay. The first time we saw Lampre riders was at the 2000 World Championship where Zbigniew Spruch of Poland finished 2nd. The team returned to Plouay in 2004 and has lived since all editions, winning two victories with Grega Bole in 2011 and Filippo Pozzatto in 2013; she also ranked 2nd in 2008 with Alessandro Ballan and 4th in 2005 with Daniele Bennati.
