Allan Peiper: 'I've seen a lot of champions come through my ranks but Tadej Pogačar is different'

Australian Allan Peiper, the veteran of five Tours de France as a rider, is the principal sports director with UAE Team Emirates. Having previously worked with HTC Columbia, Garmin and BMC, there are few more qualified practitioners in the sport. In 2019 he took time away from the sport as he was battling through chemotherapy, after a second recurrence of prostate cancer. His stewardship of the prodigiously talented Tadej Pogačar – and the meticulous preparation he devoted to the decisive day of racing at the 2020 Tour de France – produced a historic stage that will be talked about for decades to come.
