Cycling: The second edition of the Dubai Tour is only a couple of days away. From fourth of February, the riders will battle to find the successor of last year’s winner Taylor Phinney.
Upcoming Wednesday, the 16 teams will row up at the starting line in the city of Dubai and make their way into the first of four stages. The people behind the tour put in a lot of effort to make it even more attravtive for riders and fans alike. The 663km are much more varied than they were last year, when it was basically a battle of the sprinters. In 2015 however, there’s even a hill finish and some steep climbs, so it feels a lot more like a “real” tour.
Wie bereits im Vorjahr tauchen auch 2015 unter den Namen der Teilnehmer einige Radsportgrößen auf, darunter beispielsweise Vincenzo Nibali oder Mark Cavendish. Für die Trikots der jeweils Führenden in den Einzelwertungen zeichnet sich in diesem Jahr niemand geringeres als Designer Paul Smith verantwortlich.
So we’re excited to see who’s going to follow Phinney as second winner of the Dubai Tour – Vincenzo Nibali perhaps? Or Mark Cavendish? We’ll see. The jerseys for the different classifications were designed by world famous fashion designer Paul Smith.
