Race To It
Oct 05, 2018
Abu Dhabi and Dubai Tour merge to
form the UAE Tour
The first edition of the UAE Tour will launch in 2019 starting in Abu Dhabi and ending in Dubai, with the 2020 Race reversing the route. Organisers expect to expand
the race to include more stages as it develops.
In line with cycling tradition, the route and jerseys will be
unveiled only early next year. However, the new logo, the
official advertising campaign and associated promotional
activities will be shown in a dedicated event at the beginning
of this month.
Also due to be unveiled in October will be the new edition
of the Educational project: an hour-long workshop created
exclusively for UAE schools focusing on familiarising students
with the history of the bicycle, the benefits of cycling and road
In the last three years, almost 4,000 children between 8 and
12 years old, and from thirty different schools in Abu Dhabi,
Al Ain and Al Dhafra attended the Educational project. Thanks
to the new UAE Tour, in 2019 the project will also be extended
to several schools from the other Emirates.
