UAE Tour

men|Start: 24 February|Finish: 2 March

Team Sunweb coach Aike Visbeek said: “The newly named UAE Tour has a few exciting new stages and a couple of the classic stages that we have seen before, with the Hatta Dam and Jebeel Hafeet mountain top finishes. Our main goal is the GC where we have two leaders with Wilco and Tom. We also have a secondary goal with Max for the three sprint stages and bring a new lead-out train with Cees and road captain Nikias. We are looking for a solid result in the opening TTT and with Rob and Cees we have two debutants for this discipline in our team. For Rob it will be his first race and Cees had a really good debut with the team in Australia and really impressed us with some stunning performances.”
