About Jan - 

Jan Polanc is a Slovenian pro cyclist who rides for UAE Team Emirates. At 25 he is already a two time stage winner of the Giro d'Italia. Jan is regarded as one of top young talents in the peloton. 2017 has represented a breakthrough year so far Jan, he was one of the stand out riders of the 100th Giro d'Italia winning a superb stage where he led almost from start to finish to claim victory on top of Sicily's Mount Etna and in turn would wear the Mountains classification jersey for the coming days. Jan went on to solidify his future Grand Tour potential finishing 11th on GC.

From 2011 Jan raced for top Slovenian club Radenska before joining the professional ranks with Lampre in 2013 racing in the famous pink and blue colours for 4 successful seasons before joining UAE Team Emirates in 2017. Already a twice stage winner of the Giro we expect Jan to continue to progress in the WorldTour and become a major protagonist in future GrandTours!
