Dubai, UAE, June 19, 2018:  UAE Team Emirates will continue its preparations for the Tour de France as a team of seven riders gear up to take on the  Adriatica Ionica Race (20-24 June). The team will be fronted by Valerio Conti, who goes into the five-stage race in high spirits, having impressed in recent weeks at the Giro d’Italia and Criterium du Dauphiné. The young Italian will be supported by a team blending youth and experience that includes: Ben Swift, Darwin Atapuma, Simone Consonni, Simone Petilli, Manuele Mori and Edward Ravasi. 
 
Commenting on the upcoming race, Valerio Conti said: “I am really motivated. I want to try and achieve good results for the team. After a challenging Giro d’Italia and the Criterium du Dauphiné, I’m trying to prepare a balanced approach to the Adriatica Ionica, recover some energy but at the same time, maintain the good form I enjoyed on the roads of Italy and France. I’ll see how my legs respond after the first stages and then I’ll consult with the team to consider whether or not there are circumstances in place to vie for the top spots in the General Classification, or if it will be easier to concentrate on individual stages.”
 
The Adriatica Iconica Race is the latest instalment of the UCI European Tour, making its debut as a category 2.1.
