HE Al Tayer added: “In accordance with the directives of His Highness Sheikh Mansoor Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Chairman of Dubai Sports Council, we were keen to select a route that showcases new areas and attractions of Dubai to the world, and passes through many of our historic and culture districts, and, of course, our best known tourist attractions, because the Tour, which started in Abu Dhabi, is an important means of presenting the splendor and magnificence of our country and its people to the world, as well as the distinction of our country in every field.
“The wheel of development continues for us, with new residential, commercial, industrial and tourism projects being delivered every year. So, the riders have passed through different areas of Dubai today, including the new ones that have been added to the Tour for the first time, including the likes of Deira Islands and the modern residential and commercial areas in Ras Al Khor, where the world’s tallest tower is under construction, as well as the areas they used to pass through in previous years, like Deira, Jumeirah, Al Sufouh, Marina, Jumeirah Islands, Al Marmoom Desert Conservation Reserve, and many other unique areas of Dubai that have dazzled the world with their splendid design and implementation.”
His Excellency the Vice Chairman of Dubai Sports Council concluded: “Dubai has become a world-class cycling-friendly city and a favorite destination of fans of this sport thanks to the availability of international-class tracks in different regions. Exclusive cycling paths, tracks and bridges have become a distinctive feature of Dubai, allowing everyone to ride in a safe environment, and all of this is reflected in the vitality, activity and health of our community members as well as their participation in various sports events, and their presence in the UAE Tour and as they cheer on their favorite cycling stars across the country.”
