“First and foremost I would like to thank my former team for everything they have done for me over the past three years. I am now delighted to say that I joined the Emirates team. I am very excited about this transformation,” Hershey said in a press release. “We share the same approach and goals. . The UAE team is heading in the right direction and has grown significantly in recent years. I look forward to building on this dynamic, both for the team and for the development of myself.

Hirschi has seen a great season in 2020 with some stunning highlights, with a stage on the Tour de France and the Walloon Arrow. The exciting second place in Liège-Bastogne-Liège and the second place on the road to the World Championships (third) also reflects the wonderful season that young Hershey had experienced in 2020. In Switzerland, he was elected Cyclist of the Year.
But then suddenly a split followed between Hirschi and Team DSM (formerly Team Sunweb). The Swiss contract lasted for another year. Both sides indicate that they do not want to explain the separator.
Swiss newspaper Blick recently reported that Fabian Canselara’s neighbor in the United Arab Emirates is expecting an annual wage of € 1 million from the Emirati Emirati team. In Team DSM, Hirschi only had the usual minimum contract, which was set by the UCI.
