UAE Tour 2019 Route stage 6: Ajman – Jebel Jais

UAE Tour 2019 route 6th stageFriday 1 March - The 6th stage of the UAE Tour is a fast men's dream, except for the last 20 kilometres. The drag up to the summit line on Jebel Jais has an average slope of 5%.

The summit of Jebel Jais is the only place in the United Arab Emirates where snow has been reported. Far from frequent though, you can count the occasions on the fingers of one hand. The Jebel Jais reaches an altitude of 1,892 metres. As far as the race is concerned, the climb peaks at 1,113 metres. So snow is not exactly an imminent threat to the riders.

During the 6th stage of the UAE Tour it is the first time the pro-peloton visits Jebel Jais. Following a race on pan-flat roads the first uphill appears with 50 kilometres remaining. Basically, this is merely a false flat which runs until the base of the final climb. The last 20 kilometres go up at 5% on a wide highway, while the surrounds are barren and rocky. As if climbing on the moon.

The first three riders on the line win time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds, while two intermediate sprints (at kilometre 30.9 and at kilometre 80.2) come with 3, 2 and 1 seconds.

The 6th stage of the UAE Tour starts at 12:05 and the expected finish is around 16:40 – both are local times.
