David de la Cruz, UAE leader for the Tour of the Alps and Var

The Catalan will share the line-up with Rui Costa and Ryan Gibbons, two other assets of the team to hunt stages and seek triumphs when sprinting.


The Spanish David de la Cruz will be the leader together with the Portuguese Rui Costa in the UAE Emirates that will face this weekend the Tour of the Maritime Alps and Var. "We have three intense stages with a lot of mountains and also with fierce competition. On paper we have a balanced team with options for the general, with myself and the opportunity for scenic opportunities through Gibbons and Rui Costa," said the Catalan cyclist.

De la Cruz faces the Tour of the Alps as part of his preparation for Paris Nice and Volta Catalunya. "I had a good block of altitude training on Teide with the team and I'm excited about the start of the 2021 season," he recalled. The UAE Emirates formation for the French event will be composed of David de la Cruz, Rui Costa (Portugal), Camilo Ardila (Colombia), Joe Dombrowski (USA), Ryan Gibbons (South Africa), Cristian Muñoz (Colombia) and Aleksander Riabushenko (Belarus) .
