Rui Returns: Costa, Aru & Martin Looking to Make an Impact in Italian One-day Races
Dubai, UAE, October 08, 2018:  The racing continues to come thick and fast for UAE Team Emirates as they face three back to back events in Italy. The team will line-up for the Tre Valli Varesine (9 October), Milano-Torino (10 October) and at the Gran Piemonte (11 October).
 
Making his return to the Emirati team will be Rui Costa, who secured a top 10 finish at the World Championships in Innsbruck and will lead the line-up at  Tre Valli Varesine. Supporting the former World Champion will be teammates: Andrea Bagioli, Matteo Bono, Edward Ravasi, Aleksandr Riabushenko, Ben Swift and Oliviero Troia.
 
Meanwhile, Milano-Torino will see the return of two of UAE Team Emirates’ stars – former Italian National Champion, Fabio Aru and Tour de France stage winner, Dan Martin. The pair will join Rui Costa as the main protagonists of the team, with the trio relying on support from Andrea Bagioli, Filippo Ganna, Jan Polanc and Rory Sutherland.
 
In the final race, the Gran Piemonte, it will be UAE Team Emirates’ trainee Nicolás Tivani leading the line-up alongside Filippo Ganna, the latter of whom finished second in the Individual Time Trial (ITT) at the Italian National Championships last week. The pair are supported by Marco Marcato, Manuele Mori, Simone Petilli, Edward Ravasi and Rory Sutherland. 
 
Sports Director Mario Scirea, who will guide the team over the three days, commented: “We’re expecting three interesting races in which we can line up some important riders. Rui Costa will find routes suited to his skills in the Tre Valli Varesine and in the Milano-Torino we will have several options, since Aru and Martin will also be there. In the Gran Piemonte, Tivani could have a good chance if the race ends in a sprint. We will try to make the most of the three races as we prepare our approach to Il Lombardia.”
