Alberto Contador to take part in Abu Dhabi Tour

Alberto Contador will take part in the upcoming Abu Dhabi Tour. The organization of the race has confirmed the participation of the Trek-Segafredo rider.

For the cyclist, nicknamed 'El Pistolero', it will be his second race of the season after the Ruta del Sol. These races form the start of a season in which Contador's main objective is to win the Tour de France for the third time.

The Abu Dhabi Tour is the only Middle Eastern race in the UCI WorldTour and 16 teams of the top-level will take part as well as four continental squads. The race will take place between the 23rd and the 26th of February.

Contador will also be part of the Top Riders' press conference that will be held at the Yas Marina Circuit of Abu Dhabi one day before the start of the race.
