The organisation of the UAE Tour has announced the dates for the second edition of the race in 2020.

The only WorldTour race in the Middle East will be held between the 23rd and the 29th of February of 2020, as was ratified by the UCI. The second edition of the race will take the riders through routes along the seven Emirates: Dubai, Fujairah, Ajman, Ras-Al-Khaimah, Umm-Al-Quwain, Abu Dhabi and Sharjah.

The 2019 edition of the UAE Tour was won by Primoz Roglic and had the presence of 140 riders including former World Champions Alejandro Valverde, Rui Costa and Michal Kwiatkowski, as well as Grand Tour winners like Tom Dumoulin and Vincenzo Nibali.

"The reception of the first edition of the UAE Tour was highly positive, from riders and teams, from the viewers, the sponsors and from broadcasters worldwide," said Mauro Vegni, RCS Sport Cycling Director.

"So we are delighted to share with you what we have been working on together since the end of last year’s race in preparation for 2020, with our new start and finish locations. I would like to thank our partners, Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Sharjah Sports Council for their confidence."
