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 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.
