Marc Hirschi is set to make his long-awaited debut for UAE Team Emirates at the Volta a Catalunya on Monday. The race runs March 22-28 and has a stellar field that includes Chris Froome (Israel Start-Up Nation), Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe) and Richard Carapaz (Ineos Grenadiers). 

The 22-year-old hasn’t raced since his shock move from Team DSM at the start of the year. He was meant to race the UAE Tour in February but spent almost the three months of the year on the sidelines.
