United Arab Emirates, 19 February 2021 – The third edition of the UAE Tour, the one and only WorldTour race in the Middle East, will start on Sunday 21 February from Al Dhafra, Abu Dhabi.
The race will feature four stages dedicated to sprinters, two for the climbers and one individual time trial for a total of 1041km of riding, with a significant elevation gain of around 3500m metres overall, mostly concentrated into Stages 3 and 5 (thanks to summit finishes atop Jebel Hafeet and Jebel Jais). From 21 to 27 February, the route will cross five of the seven independent city-states that form the United Arab Emirates, with Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Umm al-Quwain, Fujairah and Ras al-Khaimah all playing host to the race.
