The Sardinian can breathe a sigh of relief. It looked like his once promising career was going to end prematurely at the end of this year. Aru won the Tour of Spain in 2015 and also finished on the podium twice in the Tour of Italy (third in 2014 and second in 2015), but has failed to achieve significant results in the past three years. . His title of Italian champion in 2017 and the stage victory on the Tour that year at La Planche des Belles Filles were his last notable facts.
Aru carried out the first (successful) part of his career with Astana training (2013-2017). Since joining UAE-Team Emirates in 2018, he has been looking for his best.
With Qhubeka, a new opportunity presents itself. The Italian will be the teammate of our compatriots Victor Campenaerts and Dimitri Claeys.
The manager’s team Douglas Ryder seemed set to disappear after losing its main sponsor NTT. At the end of November, the team was able to restart under the name of Qhubeka Assos.
