UAE Tour 2019 Route stage 7: Dubai – Dubai

UAE Tour 2019 route 7th stageSaturday 2 March -At 145 kilometres, the ultimate stage of the UAE Tour is entirely played out within the perimeters of Dubai City. Expect the sprinters to detonate the fireworks one last time.

The finish is near the Dubai City Walk, which is a huge shopping mall at the intersection of Al Wasl and Al Safa Road. The place saw the first peloton sprint in 2017 when Marcel Kittel powered to victory in the Dubai Tour. Last year, Elia Viviani did the same thing. Both sprinters simultaneously sealed the overall victory, which is very unlikely to happen in the last stage of the UAE Tour. Following summit finishes on Jebel Hafeet and Jabel Jais , the overall victor must be a climber.

Yet, the winner of stage 7 is sure to be a fast finisher. The route in Dubai is as flat as can be.

The first three riders on the line win time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds, while two intermediate sprints (at kilometre 86.3 and at kilometre 116.7) come with 3, 2 and 1 seconds.

The 7th stage of the UAE Tour starts at 13:15 and the expected finish is around 16:40 – both are local times.
