Irish cyclist Dan Martin believes this will be a huge year for him. And his tenure at UAE Team Emirates officially began today.

He has signed for the team on the promise of full backing at the Tour de France.

Dan Martin finished 6th in the race last year despite a horror crash on stage 8. And with some team backing, and a bit of luck, he feels he could win the race.

His new employer today released a photo gallery and video featuring its top new riders. And Martin is in there alongside the likes of Fabio Aru.

European champion Alexander Kristoff also gets the star treatment in publicity material that promotes all three equally.

 

 

Martin is now aged 31 years and, incredibly, he is going into his 12th season in the pro ranks.

He began as a stagiaire for Team Slipstream midway through the 2007 campaign. It was then a ProContinental team and Martin was just shy of his 21st birthday.

He would sign with the team full-time for the following year. It became Garmin-Chipotle; still at ProConti level. The following year the team would move up to WorldTour level as Garmin-Slipstream.

And Dan Martin would remain with the US outfit until the end of the 2015 season.

He then joined rival squad QuickStep; racing for the Belgian outfit for the last two years. He has signed with Team UAE Emirates for two years.
