Reigning champion Ulissi also part of 7-rider squad
 
 
With the Tour de France fast approaching, UAE Team Emirates will continue their build-up at the Tour of Slovenia (2.Pro) which runs from 9-13 June.
 
The team takes a line-up packed with talent, headlined by Tour de France champion and local favourite: Tadej Pogačar. Alongside Pogačar the squad also holds the defending Tour of Slovenia champion Diego Ulissi in their ranks after his victory in 2019 (the 2020 race was suspended). The Italian has pedigree in this race, having also won the title in 2011.
 
Ulissi is not the only former race winner with Rafal Majka having claimed the 2017 edition and will return to compliment the experienced team.
 
Pogačar: “I'm really looking forward to come home to race the Tour of Slovenia. I'll be racing against friends, old teammates and it will be a real buzz to be home on familiar roads. It's going to be nice having the local support too.It's an exciting time for Slovenian cycling now and I'm sure we can look forward to a great race. I think our team is very strong and we hope to be fighting for the victory.”
 
Sports Directors Andrej Hauptman (Slo) and Manuele Mori (Ita) will lead the 7 riders:
 
-Vegard Stake Laengen (Nor)
-Rafal Majka (Pol)
-Rui Oliveira (Por)
-Tadej Pogačar (Slo)
-Jan Polanc (Slo)
-Matteo Trentin (Ita)
-Diego Ulissi (Ita)
