Yousif Mirza, Emirati National Road Race and Time Trial Champion, will be pinning race numbers to his UAE Team Emirates jersey once again as his season resumes at the Circuito de Getxo scheduled for Sunday in the Basque region of northern Spain.
Mirza joins a seven man squad for the 181-km one day race, which will be working in the service of the team's super star sprinter, Fernando Gaviria.
The relatively flat course of the race sets it up for a bunch sprint finish in which Gaviria will be hoping to assert his dominance and open his season restart with a win.

Circuito de Getxo
Team Manager Joxean Matxin Fernandez (Spa) and Sports Directors Neil Stephens (Aus) will guide the squad:
