ABU DHABI TOUR

The 2017 edition of the Abu Dhabi Tour is set to feature a spectacular list of participants as both climbers and sprinters travel to the Middle Eastern nation to show their skills.

Defending champion Tanel Kangert is joined by teammate Fabio Aru and faces fierce competition from top GC leaders like Nairo Quintana, Alberto Contador, Romain Bardet and Vincenzo Nibali, among others.

As three of the four stages are flat and likely to result in mass sprints, some of the world's fastest guys have also confirmed their participation. Marcel Kittel, Mark Cavendish, Andre Greipel and Caleb Ewan are among those fighting for valuable stage victories.
