Ulissi Kick-starts Uae Team Emirates' Pursuit of Giro Glory
Dubai, United Arab Emirates - May 12, 2019:   UAE Team Emirates kicked off their pursuit of Giro d’Italia glory, with Italian Diego Ulissi coming in 17th during today’s opening stage.

Commenting on his finish, Ulissi said: “I felt really good out there and put in a solid ride. I preferred to push hard in the first part because I knew that on the climb I would lose time to the pure climbers.”
