Tadej Pogacar is set to lead UAE Team Emirates in the Tour of Slovenia, in preparation for the Tour de France.

The winner of the 2020 edition of the French grand tour will continue his preparation for the 2021 race in his home town at the Tour of Slovenia. The young talent will have next to him two former winners of the race: Diego Ulissi -who won it in 2019, the latest edition of the race- and Rafal Majka -the rider who won it in 2017.

"I'm really looking forward to coming home to race the Tour of Slovenia," said Pogacar. "I'll be racing against friends, old teammates and it will be a real buzz to be home on familiar roads. It's going to be nice having the local support too.

"It's an exciting time for Slovenian cycling now and I'm sure we can look forward to a great race. I think our team is very strong and we hope to be fighting for the victory."
