The group of 25 riders, including two-time Tour de France winner and currently number one in men's UCI World Ranking Tadej Pogačar, toured the Emirates Pavilion and interacted with the digital aviation experiences. Riders experimented with robotic arms at Emirates’ future lab, created their own personalised aircraft, and immersed themselves in the cabins of the future.
Mauro Gianetti, CEO, UAE Team, Emirates said, “Our experience in the Emirates Pavilion at Expo 2020 was mind blowing. As a professional WorldTour cycling team we all spend a lot of time travelling, so it was absolutely fascinating for us to get a glimpse into the future of aviation. The experience was not only informative, but interactive and inspiring and all of our riders left feeling excited about the next 50 years of flying.”
Located in the Opportunity District, the Emirates Pavilion provides Expo 2020 Dubai visitors a technically advanced, must-see opportunity to experience the future of aviation through its interactive, multi-sensory installations.
Emirates has been a proud sponsor of UAE Team Emirates since 2017, which is the airline’s first cycling sponsorship.
