THE ONE AND ONLY WORLD TOUR RACE
IN THE MIDDLE EAST
The seven-day UAE Tour – the only WorldTour event in the Middle East – will start in Dubai, finish in Abu Dhabi and race through all seven Emirates, building on last year’s incredibly successful first edition
The 2020 UAE Tour will attract teams and riders of the same matchless calibre, with start lists to be announced closer to the event. While the full route details are yet to be unveiled, the 2nd UAE Tour will feature a balanced course and is expected to cover more than 1000km with an elevation gain of more than 4500m – ideal for all-round General Classification riders while still presenting opportunities for sprinters and time trial specialists to fight for stage wins.
Along with the world’s finest athletes fighting it out, the UAE Tour has inspired competitive cycling in many UAE citizens, and in bringing many visitors to the region, with more than 1,000 riders taking part in the four UAE Tour Challenges, demonstrating that the UAE is a leading cycling destination, not just for professionals but also for enthusiasts. Other important community involvement included an Educational Project, presented by Mubadala, an initiative through which over 2,000 students have learned about the benefits of cycling and road safety.
