Abu Dhabi Tour 2018 Route stage 2: Yas Island – Yas Island
Thursday, 22 February 2018 - At 154 kilometres, the 2nd stage of the Abu Dhabi Tour runs from Yas Island to Yas Island, just outside of Abu Dhabi town.
Yas Island holds the amusement park Ferrari World Abu Dhabi and the Yas Marina Circuit. So it’s a place that’s used to high speeds. Formula Rossa, the world’s fastest roller coaster, is located here and the circuit hosted the Formula One Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix since 2009
Following the start the riders leave Yas Island to head for Khalifa Port, a deepwater port north of Abu Dhabi town (and Yas Island). Along the coastline the Abu Dhabi Tour heads back. The route is as flat as can be. If a strong westerly wind would be blowing, then this would be a setback to cope with. The second part of the race would be open to echelons with crosswinds and headwinds lurking everywhere.
The first three riders on the line take time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds, while the two intermediate sprints (at kilometre 101.9 and at kilometre 133.0) come with 3, 2 and 1 seconds.
