(United Arab Emirates, 23rd February 2021) Breitling has been announced as the official timekeeper of the UAE Tour 2021, the Middle East’s world tour race. As Official Timekeeper, the luxury Swiss watchmaker will award the winner of each of the tour’s seven stages, and the overall General Classification victor, with the Breitling Endurance Pro. The model features a red inner bezel ring and a bold red rubber strap, matching the UAE Tour’s official colour.
The partnership is Breitling’s latest chapter in a long and storied link with cycling and continues a legacy that has embraced legendary riders such as Fausto Coppi and Gino Bartali, as well as partnerships with major competitions including the Giro d’Italia and the Tour de France.
Commenting on the partnership, Aed Adwan, Managing Director, Breitling Middle East, India and Africa said: ‘’We are delighted to be the official timekeeper of the UAE Tour 2021 and to be continuing Breitling’s legacy in competitive cycling.
