UAE Tour 2021 Route stage 7: Yas Island - Abu Dhabi

UAE Tour 2021Saturday 27 February - The last stage of the UAE Tour should see a sprint finish at Abu Dhabi Breakwater. The start is at Yas Island, just north-east of the city, while the route is 147 kilometres long.

The start at Yas Mall and the finish at Abu Dhabi Breakwater are just 38 kilometres by road. But as the race begins with a lap north of Yas Island and another one to the south, the race adds up to almost 150 kilometres.

As far as the outcome goes, it does not matter. A sprint finish is the only likely option at the end of the entirely flat route.

Last year’s Abu Dhabi sprint finish was cancelled, but in 2019 Fernando Gaviria outgunned Elia Viviani and Caleb Ewan after a royal lead-out by Alexander Kristoff.

The first three riders on the line gain time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds, while two intermediate sprints – at kilometre 42.6 and 130.7 – come with 3, 2 and 1 seconds.
