Dubai: UAE Team Emirates’ Alexander Kristoff & Sven Erik Bystrom have both committed a further two years to UAE Team Emirates and will now ride for the team until the end of the 2021 World Tour season.
Kristoff has been one of the standout performers since joining the team in 2018, picking up five wins in his debut season including the final stage of the 2018 Tour de France. This season has seen another fine return, with the former European Champion picking up four race victories; his most recent at the GP du canton d’Argovie.
“I’m happy to have renewed for another two years. I feel at home here and the atmosphere in the team is great. I hope that the next two years will bring good things both for me and for the team,” Kristoff said.
UAE Team Emirates CEO Mauro Gianetti added: “We are setting out an important growth path for the team, but big projects need strong roots and we really wanted to renew both Kristoff and Bystrøm. Alexander has achieved very important results and we believe he has plenty more ahead of him. Sven is an under-23 World Champion and a great prospect.”
