Tadej Pogacar reveals UAE dream team to surround him at Tour de France

The tone is set: UAE will come, from June 29, to the Tour de France to crush everything. To do this, the Emirati team has put together a five-star cast around Tadej Pogacar, as the Slovenian announced on Eurosport’s Watts Occuring podcast.

Composed almost entirely of climbers capable of appearing in the general classification of a Grand Tour, the team will aim to allow the 25-year-old Slovenian to bring back his third yellow jersey (after 2020 and 2021), exceptionally in Nice and not at the Champs -Elysées.

Pogacar will notably be accompanied in the mountains by the Briton Adam Yates, 3rd in the last Tour, but also by the Spaniard Juan Ayuso, best young person of the last Vuelta, the Portuguese Joao Almeida, best young person of the 2023 Giro, and other climbers such as Frenchman Pavel Sivakov and Spaniard Marc Soler.

The Belgian Tim Wellens and the German Nils Politt complete the team, and could try to win stages favorable to their puncher profile.
