Marc Hirschi, who switched to the UAE Emirates team at the beginning of the year, will compete in the Tour de France alongside Tadej Pogacar.
In the defending champion’s team, Hirschi will undoubtedly play an important role on the tour. However, the Bernese will not get the same freedoms as his former employer DSM (then Sunweb). The overall ranking is given priority, Hirschi will have to put himself in the service of Pogacar.
Probably start at the Olympics
Otherwise UAE Emirates will lay out the red carpet for its new driver regarding the racing program. After the start of the UAE Tour (February 20-27), the first highlights for the 22-year-old are the Ardennes classics with the Gold Race, the Flèche Wallonne, which Hirschi finished as the winner last year, and Liège-Bastogne-Liège at.
This is followed by the Tour de Suisse, the Tour de France and probably the Olympic street race in Tokyo. At the end of the season, Hirschi is also planning to start at the World Cup in Flanders and the Tour of Lombardy.
