Majka and three teammates with UAE Team Emirates until the end of 2024

11:05 am Polish cyclist Rafal Majka will also compete for UAE Team Emirates for the next two seasons. The 32-year-old Majka has extended his contract until the end of 2024.

Majka has been driving for UAE Team Emirates since 2021 and he had an important part in Tadej Pogacar’s Tour victory last year. Last year he won a stage in the Vuelta in the service of the team.

The Italian Diego Ulissi, the American Brandon McNulty and Mikkel Bjerg from Denmark also extended their contract until the end of 2024. The 33-year-old Ulissi has been driving for the team for years and already has 54 victories to his name, McNulty (24) and Bjerg ( 23) joined the squad in 2020 as talented riders.

This year, the UAE Team Emirates failed to extend the Tour victory. Team Jumbo-Visma turned out to be too strong and the Dane Jonas Vingegaard took the overall victory on behalf of the Dutch team.

Football players drop to sixth place in the world ranking after European Championship
