UAE Team Emirates on the podium at Strade Bianche
Published in The Saudi Gazette on 02 - 08 - 2020

After a strong squad performance at the Vuelta Burgos, which included a win for Fernando Gaviria, UAE Team Emirates has continued its successful season restart with Italian national champion, David Formolo, taking a well-earned podium spot at Strade Bianche — the first World Tour event to be hosted since racing was postponed in March.
Belgian Wout Van Aert (Jumbo-Visma) took the victory after a solo attack with 12km to go. Formolo chased hard along the white gravel roads of Tuscany to secure second place, along with Max Schachmann (Bora - Hansgrohe) who trailed behind and rounded out the top three.
Davide Formolo: "It has been a beautiful race. I really suffered with the heat, and also because we have trained for a month in altitude.
"It's always great to race at Strade Bianche, there a little bit of regret for having missed a beautiful victory, but the second place is a good result anyway and tops-off a good week for the team.
"Now I'll look towards Milan-San Remo which is a different style of parcours but we'll give it our best."
Results: 1. Wout Van Aert (Jumbo-Visma) 4:58:56; 2.Davide Formolo (UAE Team Emirates) +30"; 3. Max Schachmann (Bora - Hansgrohe) +32".
Meanwhile at Vuelta Burgos, David De La Cruz and Fabio Aru cemented their place in the top-10 in the general classification with a strong show of form on the final day.
The final stage 5 from Covarrubias to Lagunas de Neila was won by Ivan Sosa (Ineos) while Remco Evenepoel (Deceuninck-QuickStep) claimed the overall title.
Stage 5 Results: 1. Ivan Sosa (Ineos) 3:47:56; 2. Mikel Landa (Bahrain-McLaren) + 9"; 3. Remco Evenepoel (Deceuninck-Quick Step) + 11"; 10. David De La Cruz (UAE Team Emirates) + 1'12''.
Final General Classification: 1. Remco Evenepoel (Deceuninck-QuickStep) 19:14:42; 2. Mikel Landa (Bahrain McLaren) +30"; 3. Joao Almeida (Deceuninck-QuickStep) +1'12"; 8. David De La Cruz (UAE Team Emirates) +2'34"; 9. Fabio Aru (UAE Team Emirates) +2'36". — SG
