UAE Team Emirates announced the signing of climber David de la Cruz for the 2020 and 2021 seasons. The Spaniard will move across from Team Ineos, where he has acted as a key climbing domestique in the Grand Tours, helping Chris Froome to victory in the 2018 Giro d'Italia and 2017 Vuelta a España.

De la Cruz has a stage win in the 2016 Vuelta a Espana and two stages of Paris-Nice on his palmares as well as two third-place finishes in the Vuelta a Burgos general classification. He joins other newcomers Joe Dombrowski (EF Education First), Davide Formolo (Bora-Hansgrohe) and young riders Brandon McNulty (Rally UHC), Mikkel Bjerg (Axeon Hagens Berman) and Alessandro Covi (Colpack) in the team.
