Tadej Pogacar (UAE Emirates) successfully sealed the overall victory in the opening WorldTour race of the 2021 season, after the cancellation of the Tour Down Under due to the coronavirus pandemic.
One year on from COVID-19 hitting the race and ending it prematurely, Pogacar won stage 3 on Jebel Hafeet and finished second behind Danish rider Jonas Vingegaard (Jumbo-Visma) on the finish at Jebel Jais and was fourth in the individual time trial - the three main difficulties in the race - to claim the overall win ahead of 2020 champion Adam Yates (Ineos Grenadiers).
On the sprint stages, Mathieu van der Poel (Alpecin-Fenix) won the opening stage and took the race lead but his team withdrew after a staff member tested positive for COVID-19. Sam Bennett (Deceuninck-Quickstep) took a pair of stage wins while Caleb Ewan (Lotto Soudal) took out the final stage.
