Building on their commitment to inspire the next generation of cyclists in the region, UAE Team Emirates’ top riders took time out of their week long training camp yesterday, to host a series of coaching clinics with our students at our Academy.
The sessions were led by Emirati National Champion Yousif Mirza who was joined by Tour de France stage winners Dan Martin and Alexander Kristoff, as well as Norwegian National Champion, Vegard Stake Laegen, his fellow countryman Sven Erik Bystom, Slovenian star Jan Polanc and Croatian climber Kristijan Durasek.  
The activity was part of the UAE Team Emirates Youth Academy, which was launched over the summer in Dubai with the aim of getting more youngsters into the sport of cycling. During yesterday’s session Foundation Stage children were taken through the basics of cycling on balance bikes and talked to about the importance of wearing helmets, whilst older students were challenged with a series of bike handling skills tests and given practical advice on bike safety and maintenance. 
Elite athletes from the school were also able to participate in a cycling master class and a Q+A session with the pro riders and their coaches, focussing on the importance of effective training, recovery and nutrition. 
Commenting on the ride, Yousif Mirza said: “One of the best things about being a professional bike rider is being able to give back to the next generation of cyclists and be a role model for young kids. I feel extremely proud every time I race for UAE Team Emirates, but today was extra special because I got to inspire young Emirati children. I would like to think that this experience stays with them for a long time and keeps them excited about cycling for years to come.”
Alexander Kristoff, who won the final sprint stage at this year’s Tour de France said: “I love visiting the UAE and it means even more when we get to work on community initiatives. One of the reasons I wanted to join UAE Team Emirates was because of their vision to create a cycling culture in the region and today is a clear example of that ambition coming to life.” He continued: “I thought the kids were great. Really enthusiastic and really talented. They worked super hard and all of them improved in one way or another. I think they did themselves and their school proud”
