The first WorldTour race of the years kicks off in the Middle East with the UAE Tour. After the cancellation of the Tour Down Under, this is the first chance to see a full smorgasbord of top-level talent in the peloton in 2021 - here's how you can live stream the 2021 UAE Tour.

Starting on Sunday (February 21) the seven-stage race will feature a host of star names, including Tour de France winner Tadej Pogačar (UAE Team Emirates), Mathieu van der Poel (Alpecin-Fenix), reigning champion Adam Yates (Ineos Grenadiers) as well as the sprinting talents of Sam Bennett (Deceuninck - Quick-Step), Caleb Ewan (Lotto-Soudal) and Elia Viviani (Cofidis). Meanwhile, Chris Froome will also be making his debut for Israel Start-Up Nation.

Hi. I'm Cycling Weekly's Weekend Editor. I like writing offbeat features and eating too much bread when working out on the road at bike races.

Before joining Cycling Weekly I worked at The Tab and I've also written for Vice, Time Out, and worked freelance for The Telegraph (I know, but I needed the money at the time so let me live).

I also worked for ITV Cycling between 2011-2018 on their Tour de France and Vuelta a España coverage. Sometimes I'd be helping the producers make the programme and other times I'd be getting the lunches. Just in case you were wondering - Phil Liggett and Paul Sherwen had the same ham sandwich every day, it was great.
