Juan Ayuso makes his debut with the UAE

The young Spanish rider will make his debut with the Emirates team this Thursday at the Giro de los Apennines and will also race the Lugano GP (June 27).


The Giro de los Apennines that takes place this Thursday will be the official debut of Juan Ayuso with the powerful UAE Emirates, the World Tour team with him enters the elite after his great first part of the year in the U-23 category. The 18-year-old Spaniard, who won in the U-23 Giro and has added nine victories in the category in 2021, has a five-year contract with the Emirates formation, although he has been racing with Colpack before taking the leap. , which as the structure confirmed to AS, this was going to be imminent.

The Spanish will be one of the great attractions of the Italian race and the Lugano GP on Sunday. To do this, he will be part of an alignment with cyclists of the stature of Diego Ulissi, Matteo Trentin, Jan Polanc, Valerio Conti, Aleksandr Riabuschenko and Alessandro Covi. Both Ayuso and the manager, Joxean Fernández Matxin, confirmed that the young cyclist will have plenty of opportunities to make contact with his new team, including World Tour events such as the San Sebastian Classic.

Both the Italian and Swiss races, which will be his first two experiences with a bib wearing UAE colors, present a broken profile and mountain passes, a specialty in which the Spaniard has excelled in lower categories. "I like climbing, but I am still becoming a cyclist," he told AS this year.

What is ruled out is that in this 2021 it debuted in a large one.
