Tadej Pogacar starts the season in Spain!

Tadej Pogacar is a man from whom much is expected this season. Pogacar made an interesting decision before the start of the season, and this year he will start his adventure at races in Spain. Pogacar will not defend his UAE Tour title.

The Slovenian feels great before the next races, and we expect a lot from him. “I’m excited for these races and to pin on a number again and be with the team,” said Pogacar, as quoted by eurosport.com
“I’ve been watching the first races last weeks on the TV and enjoying it, but also wishing a bit to be there in the action.
The preparation has been good.

I had a bit of gastroenteritis in January which wasn’t very pleasant but thankfully I’m over it and feeling healthy.
It’s nice to experience new races and I’m looking forward to what Jaen and Andalucia have in store for us.

I can’t wait to start racing again”.

Matxin Fernandez on Spain races

Adam Yates will lead the team in the UAE Tour. UAE Team Emirates sports manager Joxean Matxin Fernandez believes that his team can do a lot, and they are looking forward to the races in Spain.

“For Jaen and Andalucia we have a highly experienced team who we believe can do great things,”- Joxean Matxin Fernandez said, “Obviously the gravel aspect of Jaen makes it a good place for us to test material and bikes, so it’s a race that offers a lot.

But of course, like any race we do we are also there to target victory.
We are taking a roster with a lot of quality which will be headed by Pogacar who will also make his season debut here. Though we have many riders in the team who can step-up for a big result”.
