Tour promises to be five-star event

The fourth edition of the Dubai Tour will have five stages for the first time in the race’s history and will cover a total of 865km, taking riders across six of the seven emirates from January 31 to February 4, 2017. Joint organisers, Dubai Sports Council and RCS Sport, unveiled the route of the 2017 Dubai Tour last night at the spectacular City Walk, which will host the finish of the final stage of the event. Positioned as the start of a fourrace stretch of cycling events in the Arabian Gulf region in the month of February, the Dubai Tour is slowly becoming a favourite destination for the world’s top riders, who are looking to kick-off their season in favourable weather conditions. The Dubai showpiece will be followed by the Tour of Qatar, the Tour of Oman and finally the Abu Dhabi Tour to close out a month of racing in the Gulf.
