UAE Tour

men|Start: 23 February|Finish: 29 February

Team Sunweb coach Luke Roberts:“The UAE Tour offers a mixed parcours and opportunities throughout the week. There are four stages which should be for the pure sprinters, two mountain-top finishes on Jebel Hafeet and the punchy Hatta Dam finish on stage two. We have Wilco here as our leader for the GC and we will target a good result with him for the overall. The other six guys are all back from Australia where we put some good work in and made progress. We saw the result of that good work at the Jayco Herald Sun Tour where we took three stages and the overall win with Jai. Jai is still in good shape to help support Wilco deep into the mountain stages, with Rob and Florian riding in support too. After his first win for us in Australia, Alberto will look to continue his good form and go for his first WorldTour podium, with Asbjørn and Max setting him up for the finales.”
