Founded in 1990 in Italy and based for years in that country, in 2017 the squad experienced a major change when it became UAE Team Emirates, with Middle Eastern sponsors taking over as main backers. UAE Team Emirates’ roster of riders have rewarded their new sponsors with an impressive range of triumphs. Their 19 wins, six of them at UCI WorldTour level, included stage victories in the Giro d’Italia. Now, in 2018, the Middle Eastern squad has stepped up its game again with the signing of Fabio Aru who is now keen to make his mark – as he did in 2015 – in the Giro d’Italia.
