The Abu Dhabi Tour (23 – 26 February 2017) is the unique WorldTour race in the Middle East. Vincenzo Nibali was looking forward to the mountain-top finish and the climb of Jabel Hafeet has been a good test for him. Niccolò Bonifazio focuses on the sprinter stages and he took a podium in the opening one, where he sprinted to 3rd and he was rewarded with the White Jersey of Best Young Rider. Check out the gallery of the presentation and the four stages.
