DUBAI TOUR

The organisation of the Dubai Tour has announced the complete cancellation of Stage 4 as result of the weather conditions in the area.

Following an initial decision to shorten the stage due to the heavy wind in Hatta, the race later announced that it had decided to remove the stage from the schedule altogether.

"Based on the poor current weather conditions in Hatta, and the forecast for further deterioration later, the Race Management, in agreement with the Commissaires Panel, have applied the UCI's Extreme Weather Protocol and have cancelled today's Stage 4 of the Dubai Tour," it said in a statement.

As a result, the race's final standings will be decided in Saturday's fifth and final stage which takes place on a local circuit in the city of Dubai.
