Uran leaves UAE Tour to attend daughter’s birth


Even if the EF Education-NIPPO team has not yet unveiled its composition for the UAE Tour, we already know that Rigoberto Uran will not be competing in this first WorldTour race of the season.

The Colombian took a plane to U.S.A to his pregnant wife, who is close to giving birth. “Rigoberto Urán leaves the UAE Tour today (Saturday) to join his partner Michelle, who will give birth to their little girl in Miami. Join us to congratulate Michelle and Rigo! We wish you all the best,” wrote EF Education-NIPPO on Twitter.

Deprived of its leader, the American team will certainly be able to count on two other Colombians, Daniel Arroyave and Sergio Higuita.
