This year, after two breathtaking first editions, Abu Dhabi Tour made its entry on the UCI World Tour calendar. Top start on February 23rd.
Four stages, three sprints including one on the Yas Marina circuit, a mountain stage and 670km of race between the desert, mountains and wonders of the mythical city of Abu Dhabi. For its 2017 edition, the Tour of Abu Dhabi sees the big picture. It must be said that this competition has everything to become an inevitable cycling season rendezvous. The Union Cycliste Internationale was not mistaken and added the Tour of Abu Dhabi to the UCI World Tour 2017 calendar.
16 World Tour formations will be held from February 23rd to 26th. Among them, there will be teams of first rank including BMC. The American team in red and black will aim for the victory and should send several leaders and sprinters. To shine in the desert, all chances are worth taking.
As of 2017, TAG Heuer becomes the Official Timekeeper of the Tour of Abu Dhabi. A new partnership that allows the Swiss watchmaker to accelerate his return to cycling.
