Dubai, UAE, November 21, 2017:  UAE Team Emirates has continued its preparations for the 2018 season by undertaking a safety driving course with official team car supplier, Mitsubishi Italia. The course, organized for UAE Team Emirates’ Sports Directors, aims to encourage and promote the safe sharing of the road between cars and bikes, as well as making sure the technical team are able to drive in all weather conditions on the 2018 UCI World Tour. 
 
At the Tazio Nuvolari di Cervesina Circuit (Pavia), the technicians from the team got the chance to learn and test some fundamentals of driving safely on four wheels including; emergency braking, how to manage over-steering, swerving, drifting and controlling a vehicle. Each aspect was tested in simulated conditions, similar to those drivers face when driving the team car on the Tour.
 
Giuseppe Saronni, General Manager of UAE Team Emirates emphasized how valuable the driving course was: “We’d like to thank our partner, Mitsubishi, for organizing a practical event that contributes to the professional development of our Sports Directors. Our technicians learnt crucial skills that can be used to manage any type of driving situation during a race and improve safety for the riders. Working in professional cycling, we have the opportunity to raise awareness among drivers to respect a safe coexistence between cars and bikes. Safety is extremely important to us; this is why we hope that today’s event can catch on and be adopted by many others in the world of cycling.” 
 
In the video, drivers can be seen testing their driving skills on a variety of terrain including; wet roads, mountainous terrain and simulated icy roads.
