Stage 3: Hazza bin Zayed Stadium - Jebel Hafeet 107 km

First big uphill finish of the season and a handful of teams have sent top climbers to be competitive.

Desert fox of the Day: Liane Lippert

Judging by Valenciana and her alertness in the first two stages she’s the one we know is ready to go for this, same as Elisa Longo Borghini. Others like Persico, Faulkner and CAvalli are more unknowns. Expect a strong result for Trek’s Gaia Realini as well, this may be her introduction to a wider audience.

Stage 2: Al Dhafra Castle - Al Mirfa 133 km

A flat day that ventures further in the desert with a decent chance of crosswinds. Might be mainly on the first part though.

Without a crash in the final kms we might get what we expected yesterday. Or?

Stage 1: Port Rashid - Dubai Harbour 109 km

Opening stage of the first ever UAE Tour in the Women’s World Tour is a classic Dubai sprint stage. In total the race is three sprint stages split up by a climb to Jebel Hafeet on Saturday to settle the overall classification.

Dubai Influencer of the Day: Lorena Wiebes

Best sprinter in the world goes to best team in the world and will probably want to start off in style on an ideal stage for her.
