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 safety.

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.
