Marc Hirschi joins UAE Team Emirates
Marc Hirschi, the Swiss Sportsman of the Year 2020, has signed a new contract with the UAE Team Emirates. This marks the beginning of a new era for the young cycling talent, as he will be riding for the same team as last year's Tour de France winners from this year onwards. "You cannot imagine how proud I am for that boy from my town Ittigen. To work with an athlete like Marc adds another dimension to my post career work within professional cycling. As advisor, it is important to me that the athlete can work in an environment that challenges and encourages in equal measure. And I know this is what he will find in his new team.", says Fabian Cancellara, manager of Marc Hirschi and owner of Sette Sports.
