Stage 3 is the first summit finish of the 2023 UAE Tour. At 19km in length, the final climb of Jebel Jais is twice as long as its more famous sister, Jebel Hafeet, but it only has an average gradient of 5.6%. This kind of climb suits a few different types of riders, from the pure climbers to the lighter rouleurs, and if previous years are anything to go by, expect a cagey battle for the stage win.
