UAE Team ADQ

UAE Team ADQ have gone through several incarnations in the 12 years since their inception, starting out as an Italian Continental team but now flourishing as a United Arab Emirates-registered WorldTour outfit.

The team have had an impressive list of riders pass through their ranks, including Nicole Cooke, Chloe Hosking, Mavi García, and Marta Bastianelli.

Since being taken over by the powers behind the UAE Team Emirates men’s team in 2022, the team have strengthened their roster with the arrival of several riders from Valcar Travel & Service, which has now become the team’s official development squad.

The team's leading light is Silvia Persico, who possesses the golden combination of good climbing and good sprinting, with results in the Classics and stage races alike. They also have fellow Italian Chiara Consonni as a purer sprinter along with the likes of Eleonora Gasparrini, Erica Magnaldi, and Sofia Bertizzolo.

The team have already won some big races and made strides in the past few years but they have continued growth in their sights under the UAE management.
