Dubai, UAE, June 2, 2018:  UAE Team Emirates’Diego Ulissi will embark on his first ride since the Giro d’Italia as the Italian tackles the GP Lugano on Sunday 3rd June alongside the experienced Ben Swift and a team of young guns including: Anass Ait El Abdia, Filippo Ganna, Aleksandr Riabushenko, Jan Polanc and Simone Consonni. The team will be supported by technical director Simone Pedrazzini.
  
 Commenting ahead of the race, Ulissi explained: “I’ve lived in Lugano for years now, so this race has practically become an at-home event. In 2014 and 2016, my last two appearances in the GP Lugano, I came close to success, obtaining third and second place respectively in the final sprint. Usually the race comes down to a limited group of riders vying for victory, so it is important to make it into the lead positions in the conclusive laps.” 
  
 A one-day UCI European Tour race, the GP Lugano will see the peloton take on a 186km route through southern Switzerland with two notable climbs – from Lugano to Agra and Muzzano to Gentilino. The climbs are sure to test the legs, but UAE Team Emirates will be hoping that their combination of riders will be able to mount a serious challenge and take home the title.
