2014 Tour of Dubai Revisited

Date…. – The 2014 Tour of Dubai, or Dubai Tour if you will, was filled with non-traditional and traditional racing, it saw the Stage 1 ITT with rider’s racing against the clock on traditional road frames, and Marcel Kittel dominating stages 2-4. USA’s Taylor Phinney captured the win on Stage 1 and road steadily to the overall victory as Kittel stole the following stages.

Last year we captured all of the action via our photographer Yuzuru Sunada. Bike tech, leadouts, and riding against the wind are just some of the things that you will see in this gallery.

This years race features a strikingly different battle for GC riders, mainly because there isn’t an outright way to claim the overall, with predominantly flat stages on the parcours. Keep your eyes peeled for some serious breakaway attempts and some very high-speed sprints throughout Dubai.

Check back from February 4-7 to see our updates and gallery on all stages of the 2015 Tour of Dubai.
