UAE Team ADQ has gone through several incarnations in the 12 years since its inception, starting out as an Italian Continental team, to now being a United Arab Emirates-registered WorldTour outfit.

The team has had an impressive list of riders pass through its ranks, including Nicole Cooke, Chloe Hosking and most recently Mavi García. One of its veteran riders is Marta Bastianelli who is in her ninth season with the team, but her third stint since they started, having spent some seasons on other teams.

Since being taken over by the powers behind the UAE Team Emirates men’s team, the team has strengthened its roster with the arrival of several riders from Valcar Travel & Service, which has now become the team’s official development squad. The team has a host of sprint options, including Bastianelli until her retirement this year, but also Chiara Consonni, Eleonora Gasparrini and Sofia Bertizzolo. For the Classics and stage races, Silvia Persico is their secret weapon, possessing the golden combination of good climbing and good sprinting.

The team has already won some of the biggest races in the sport, but will be hoping to add more to their tally in their new UAE-backed era.
