UAE Team Emirates has announced the contract extension of young Slovenian talent Tadej Pogacar until 2024.

The Slovenian jumped to the WorldTour level with the Emirati team in 2019 and with it, he has taken the overall victories at the Amgen Tour of California, the Volta ao Algarve and the Volta a la Comunidad Valenciana. The 21-year-old has also stepped on the final podium of the Vuelta a España and the UAE Tour.

"I am happy to continue my relationship with UAE Team Emirates," said Pogacar. "I turned professional here and I feel very comfortable with everyone. I believe in the team and I want to be part of this ambitious project. The next five years will be fundamental for the team and for my career, with the hope that they will be fruitful years for both parties."

The rider had already inked a new deal until the end of 2022 and now has extended it for two more years. "There was a willingness on both sides to extend the contract once again," said Team Principal Mauro Gianetti. "Poga?ar represents the type of rider that each team would like: talented with a strong will to learn every day. Values ??that will project him to the top of world cycling."

The President of UAE Team Emirates, Matar Suhail Al Yabhouni Al Dhaheri, is glad about this new deal. "Our team has a long-term plan, and we are happy that such a talented young man like Tadej has committed to our project," he explained.

"We are a young but very ambitious team. The aim is not only to win the most important races in the world, but also to promote healthy lifestyles in the United Arab Emirates. Tadej will help us in both ways because in the UAE they have gone crazy for the team and its cyclists."
