Dubai Tour organizers announced the details of stages 3 and 4 on Thursday, the two stages will conclude the four-day race, February 5 and 6.
The penultimate day will be 172 kilometers, riding through the desert and finishing on the Hatta Dam climb. In 2015, Giant-Alpecin’s John Degenkolb won the stage that finished here and subsequently won Milano-Sanremo and Paris-Roubaix that spring. The final climb to the dam includes a steep, 200-meter section with gradients ranging from 12 to 17 percent.
The final day will again be one for the sprinters as the 137-kilometer race will wind through Dubai’s city and finish by Bay Avenue. Last year, Dimension Data’s Mark Cavendish won the final stage en route to his GC victory.
