Marc Hirschi will miss the early part of the 2022 season due to surgery on his hip, and will not race until at least March.

The Swiss rider's hip issue is a long-standing one stretching back three years. His start to the 2021 season – his first with UAE Team Emirates following a move from Team DSM – was delayed until the Volta a Catalunya in late March.
