Celebrated sponsorship of UAE Team ADQ on International Women’s Day

Abu Dhabi-based ADQ, one of the region’s largest holding company’s with direct and indirect investments in more than 90 companies across all sectors, expanded its healthy lifestyle and sports platform, ‘Performance Driving Us Forward’,

ahead of International Women’s Day this year, by celebrating its title sponsorship of UAE Team ADQ, the first official women’s cycling team in the region.

To mark the occasion, 240 participants gathered to celebrate all that embodied the celebration and unity of women for the official launch of the first UAE pro cycling world team. UAE team ADQUAE Team ADQ hosted a community event for cycling enthusiasts and aspiring female athletes to meet and engage with the women’s cycling team. The partnership aligns with ADQ’s existing three-year sponsorship of UAE Team Emirates and the UAE’s World Tour Professional Cycling Team, and the UAE Football Association, including the UAE’s national football teams, the President’s Cup and the UAE First and Second Division Leagues, announced last year.

First race in Almeria, fourth place for Eugenia Bujak

UAE Team ADQ's 2023 season began with fourth place for Slovenian Eugenia Bujak at the Trofeo Women Cycling Pro Costa de Almeria (1.1).

After 135 kilometres from Campohermoso (Níjar) to Cuevas del Almanzora, the race was decided in a sprint between some 20 riders. The sprint was won by the Italian Arianna Fidanza of Ceratizid-WNT, ahead of Emma Norsgaard (Movistar Team) and the French champion Audrey Cordon-Ragot (Zaaf Cycling Team), who beat Eugenia.

After the peloton cancelled out a long solo breakaway attempt by Heidi Franz (Zaaf), the race was decided on the final climb with around three kilometres to go, when Movistar Team's forcing split the peloton. Chiara Consonni, the captain in case of a bunch sprint, lost the wheels of the best, and then the team reorganised with Alena Amialiusik, Olivia Baril, Mikayla Harvey, who remained in the first group, for the sprint of Eugenia Bujak, who took a good place.

Eugenia Bujak said: "I am happy with my result and my shape and also with the opportunity I had today. It's a placing I've been waiting for a long time, after last year's difficult season. I had thyroid problems and was never able to express myself as I wanted. Now I feel good and I am very confident because I think I can still improve. I must say that this year I am very happy to be part of this team because I think there is a great group. We are very united and even today we all worked for the team. This gives me great confidence for the future”.

Vuelta CV Feminàs: Erica Magnaldi finishes fourth

Excellent debut for Erica Magnaldi who conquered an excellent fourth place in the Vuelta CV Feminàs at the end of an attacking race.
The decisive action was born on the second climb of the race at 45km to the finish, when five athletes attacked. Liane Lippert, Floortje Mackaij, Nikola Noskova, Clara Koppenburg and Erica Magnaldi took the lead.
10km from the finish Floortje Mackaij broke away and won solo, while Lippert and Noskova finished within 32 seconds. Erica Magnaldi won the two-women sprint and finished fourth.
Good job also from all the other athletes (Biriukova, Cipressi, Kumięga, Pellegrini) who finished the race in the first group of pursuers.

“The climb was really hard - explained Erica Magnaldi at the end of the race. I'm happy because I had good sensations and honestly I didn't know what to expect, because it was the first race after the surgery in September. When you get this close to the podium, it's bad to finish fourth, but this race was invaluable in learning how to manage the finish."

“It was a better start than my expectations - says Erica Magnaldi - I have to thank UAE Team ADQ and UAE Developlment Team because they gave me the opportunity to compete. This helped me to regain some self-confidence. Here in the UAE Development Team there is a beautiful atmosphere and today the young girls did very well and ran as a group. This is definitely a good team to build on.”

The contribution given by the professional riders was fundamental in the long prototyping phase and subsequent road tests and then directly in the races; the input received from the team made it possible to work on clear and defined areas, such as: aerodynamics, weight, real dynamic stiffness, geometry, robustness and reliability.
