UAE Team Emirates has announced the signing of young Frenchman Alexys Brunel, with a two-year deal.

The rider -who has been in Groupama-FDJ since the start of his career in 2019- is set to be in the Emirati squad until at least the end of 2023. The 23-year-old is from Boulogne-sur-Mer in the north of France and has shown strong performances in the Junior and U23 ranks, winning a European title and multiple French national titles in the time trial discipline.

Brunel's palmares include the victory in Paris-Tour in 2019 and his first professional win as a professional in the first stage of the 2020 Étoile de Besseges. "I am really happy to join UAE Team Emirates, it's one of the top teams in cycling and a really exciting project," said the Frenchman. "It's a great opportunity for me, it will be a turning point in my career to join a team like this, and I intend to give the best of myself."

"Alexys trajectory as a rider has been very promising up to now, and we hope he can continue to progress further with us over the coming years, both as a rider and as a person," commented UAE Team Emirates Team manager Joxean Fernandez Matxin.

"We believe he can fill a very important team role, especially when it comes to the classic-style racing and of course in the time trial, which is where he has shown he can do great things. He is a rider who will be pivotal to the success of our leaders, but will also get his space to show what he can do."
