UAE Tour 2020 Route stage 7: Al Maryah Island - Abu Dhabi

UAE Tour 2020Saturday 29 February - At 127 kilometres, the last stage of the UAE Tour is played out on a pan-flat course. The start is on Al Maryah Island and the finish in Abu Dhabi City.

The race sets off from Al Maryah Island, which lies to the north east of the city centre of Abu Dhabi’s capital. The course takes in a number of laps in which the riders move through Al Saadiyet Island, Jubail Island and Yas Island. The roads are wide and flat, so the sprinters should have it their way in the last stage of the UAE Tour.

The 2019 edition saw a sprint finish in Abu Dhabi City also. Fernando Gaviria received a royal lead-out by his teammate Alexander Kristoff. The Norwegian brought the Colombian to the final straight, where he bested Elia Viviani on the line, while Caleb Ewan took third place.

The first three riders on the line gain time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds, while two intermediate sprints – at kilometre 27 and at kilometre 84.1 – come with 3, 2 and 1 seconds.

The 7th stage of the UAE Tour starts at 13.35 and the race is expected to finish around 16.30 – both are local times.
