Team Dimension Data will face the Abu Dhabi Tour with the goal of getting stage victories with Mark Cavendish and fighting for good GC positions with Steve Cummings and Lachlan Morton.

The race will be the end of three weeks of riding in the Middle East for Cavendish, after the Dubai Tour and the Tour of Oman. The rider will aim to get the stage win on the three days that are bound to finish in bunch sprints.

Cummings will be starting his season at the race and will take advantage of the Individual Time Trial of stage 4 to get a good GC placement, while Morton will exploit his climbing talent at the 5th stage, which features a summit finish on the Jebel Hafeet.

"The Abu Dhabi Tour will be a tough challenge, as all WorldTour races are," said Sports Director Roger Hammond. "The peloton has a couple of race days in their legs now so everyone is a bit faster, all slightly sharper too so executing our plans will be key to a good result.

"We have a strong squad here for Abu Dhabi which will look to make the most of the opportunities presented to us this week."

Mark Cavendish
