As the riders and officials for Saudi Tour arrive in AlUla, team BikeExchange-Jayco, of which AlUla is the official destination partner, took the opportunity to explore some of the sights and heights.
Saudi Tour is set to kick off today with 16 teams competing in what will be the first time AlUla hosts the UCI event. The most anticipated stage 4 of the event is a 4km long climb which includes 2.7km at 12% and apart with a gradient of 22%, leading to a lunar-style plateau that offers stunning views over the valley of AlUla.
AlUla’s BikeExchange-Jayco team headed straight out to the Harrat to check out the climb.
“Amazing, what an amazing city, amazing view”, said Luka Mezgec.
“A lot of hills a lot of sand, it’s nice yeah, super beautiful”, said Lawson Craddock.
