This brand new cycling tour is set to be one of the biggest cycling events from around the world and will be kicking off in 2019 for the very first time. The combined draw of each major cycling event is likely to bring together crowds as such that the UAE has never seen before.
The brand new cycling tour was signed and set up by Arif Al Awani, the Secretary General of the Abu Dhabi Sports Council and Saeed Hareb, the Secretary General of the Dubai Sports Council. The two Secretary Generals of Sports Council for each emirate decided that the combination of the two sports is likely to create a major sporting event in the United Arab Emirates.

The UAE tour will be the first combined race in the UAE and will consist of seven stages across a full seven days and will allow the UAE to keep hold of its lucrative status as UCI World Tour operator.
The Secretary General of the Abu Dhabi Sports Counsel, Al Awani, has been quoted as saying, ‘It is time to elevate the success we have had from both the Abu Dhabi and Dubai Tours to another level. The nature of the UAE has always been to have a united passion. The instructions have come from our leadership that we should utilise the success that we have got as one nation.’
