Diego Ulissi has signed a two-year contract extension with UAE Team Emirates that will keep him at the team until the end of the 2022 campaign. The Italian has spent his entire professional career as part of the set-up, having joined the team in 2010 when it operated as Lampre.

While the hiatus from competition due to the coronavirus pandemic has cast doubt over the sustainability of several teams, UAE Team Emirates have made a number of notable commitments to their long-term future in recent weeks.

Cyclingnews is the world's leader in English-language coverage of professional cycling. Started in 1995 by University of Newcastle professor Bill Mitchell, the site was one of the first to provide breaking news and results over the internet in English. The site was purchased by Knapp Communications in 1999, and owner Gerard Knapp built it into the definitive voice of pro cycling. Since then, major publishing house Future PLC has owned the site and expanded it to include top features, news, results, photos and tech reporting. The site continues to be the most comprehensive and authoritative English voice in professional cycling.
