The past two years the UAE Tour served as the launching pad to the men’s WorldTour calendar, as the global pandemic caused cancellations to January events in Australia. This time, the lone WorldTour race in the Middle East is positioned as the third event on the WorldTour calendar for men, as the Tour Down Under and Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race return to their January slots.
The UAE Tour launched in 2019 when two existing races merged, the Abu Dhabi Tour and the Dubai Tour. Primož Roglič (Jumbo-Visma) won the inaugural race.
A full lineup of the 18 WorldTour teams are expected to compete, with top ProTeams in contention as well.
Date: February 20-26, 2023
Location: United Arab Emirates
Previous Edition: 2022
Tadej Pogačar (UAE Team Emirates) won the overall title for a second year in a row, making it a replay of 2021 as he finished in front of runner-up Adam Yates (Ineos Grenadiers). The Slovenian won the seventh and final stage of the UAE Tour at the top of Jebel Hafeet, his third victory on the signature climb.
Jebel Hafeet has been the grand finale of the seven-day stage race on multiple occasions. It has become a defining climb in the Middle East, having been part of the Abu Dhabi Tour and now the UAE Tour. The climb sits on one of the highest mountains in the United Arab Emirates and near the border with Oman.
Also on the usual menu for the UAE Tour is the summit finish at Jebel Jais. The road to the top of the imposing mountain was completed in 2017, and goes upward for 20 kilometres.
The UAE Tour on the women’s WorldTour will take place February 9-12.
