EF Education-Nippo's Rigoberto Uran has abandoned the UAE Tour to attend the birth of his daughter.

The Colombian rider was set to lead the American formation at the first WorldTour race of the season, but his family situation has forced him to leave the country one day before the start of the race. As soon as he knew his daughter was about to be born, the rider took a flight to the United States.

"Michelle [Uran's wife, Ed.] is in the hospital with strong contractions, my daughter Carlota is on the way and because of this I will abandon the UAE Tour to meet them," wrote the Colombian in his Twitter account.

His team, which will not replace the rider in such short notice, also wrote a tweet about the situation. "Rigoberto Urán is leaving the UAE Tour today to join his partner, Michelle who is set to give birth to their baby girl in Miami, USA. Join us in congratulating Michelle and Rigo! We wish you all the best!"
