Rui Costa is set to lead the roster of UAE Team Emirates at the first edition ever of the Saudi Tour.

The former World Champion will be leading a team formed by a good mix of veterans and young riders who will be making their debut with the Emirati formation. Valerio Conti will also start in the race, and he can also represent a danger for the climbers that will be on the road.

The Saudi Tour will have 755 kilometres of racing over five stages and its first edition will count on the presence of 18 teams from 13 countries. The race will be held from the fourth to the eight of February, mainly around the capital city Riyadh.

"We expect a top quality field there in Saudi Arabia," said Costa. "It's the first edition of the race and shows the big expansion of cycling in the Middle East. I've been training at altitude for the past two weeks in Sierra Nevada, Spain and my condition is quite good. I'm very excited to start my season."

UAE Team Emirates' roster for the Saudi Tour (February 4-8):

Valerio Conti
Alessandro Covi
Rui Costa
Marco Marcato
Yousif Mirza
Ivo Oliveira
