United Arab Emirates, September 28, 2020: From September 29th till October 3rd, UAE Team Emirates return to racing on the roads of Belgium and Holland for their next World Tour fixture – the BinckBank Tour.
The race will be run over five stages, including a time trial, on roads often graced by the spring classics with the final day finishing in Louvain La Neuve. After being close to winning a stage here last year, our young Belgian talent, Jasper Philipsen will be eager to challenge and build on the momentum generated by his teammates after a very successful start to the season for the team.
Sports directors Andrej Hauptman (Slo) and Allan Peiper (Aus) will manage seven riders:
– Tom Bohli (Sui)
– Sven Erik Bystrøm (Nor)
– Alessandro Covi (Ita)
– Ivo Oliveira (Por)
– Rui Oliveira (Por)
– Jasper Philipsen (Bel)
– Aleksandr Riabushenko (Bel)
Jasper Philipsen: 'Last year I also rode BinckBank and came close to winning a stage. It's 5 days of hard racing and from looking at the parcours there are a few days that suit me well. This year I hope to go one step further and go for a stage win. We have a good team for the week so I'm looking forward to it and really motivated to race on home roads here in Belgium”.
