Al Shindagha lies 35 kilometres north of Dubai Harbour. Most of the race takes place inside Dubai city, although the riders leave the metropolitan area to enter the Qudra Cycle Track after 40 kilometres.
After an out-and-back trip in the Qudra Desert the riders return to Dubai. With 37 kilometres to go they are very near the line, but the finish only happens after a lap on Palm Jumeira and a 12 kilometres journey up and down King Salman Bin Abdulaziz Al Saud Street.
The UAE Tour had its fair share of Dubai finishes, but never in Dubai Harbour. It is a new seafront district between The Palm Jumeirah and Bluewaters Island.
The first three riders on the line gain time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds, while the intermediate sprints come with 3, 2 and 1 seconds.
