Davide Formolo and Tadej Pogacar are going to captain UAE Team Emirates at Strade Bianche.

Just days after winning the General Classification at the UAE Tour, the Slovenian rider returns to ride in the also called "Sixth Monument". The winner of the 2020 Tour de France will be headlining the Emirati team along with Davide Formolo -who finished in the second position of the race in 2020.

"Last year I had an amazing day on the bike here and managed to finish second and climb on the podium," said the Italian. "It was a really special feeling, also because it was shortly after the lockdown. It's a race that suits me well and one I can do well in.

"I'll start with less pressure this year as my condition is still building. Tadej is in good form at the moment and the idea is that we both make it deep into the final with as many teammates as possible. It can be an unpredictable race but that can play to our advantage on Saturday."

UAE Team Emirates' roster for Strade Bianche (March 6):

Valerio Conti
