After his trip across Italy sponsored by the FAI – Fondo Ambiente Italiano, from Livigno (North of Italy) up to Agrigento (extremely South), Vittorio Brumotti surprises us again.
Based on the previous touring experience, he decided this time to travel across United Arab Emirates: not a race, but a lifetime experience, sponsored by Eicma (the Milan Motorcycle Shows) and Banca Intesa San Paolo.
Beside anticipating the path of the UAE Tour 2019 – third race of the UCI World Tour, this trip aims to create and promote a naturalistic and cultural itinerary (to include sport, art, history, nature, cuisine and solidarity) on two wheels, crossing the whole of Arab Emirates from South to North.
Brumotti will take his touring bike on a route throughout the country.
Vittorio Brumotti started from Al Hudayriat Island (Abu Dhabi) on February 6th and led his tour from the West Coast to the East Coast. The trip ended after seven days, after passing across all the Emirates. The entire experience has been broadcasted by Dubai Sports TV, on Brumotti’s social network official channels (Instagram @brumottistar) and DubaiBlog (@dubaiblog), so anyone was able to discover the 7 stages of his journey day after day.
“Ciao, salam aleykum” says Vittorio Brumotti during the interview realized before the start. “I’m very happy to be here in UAE, my second home, to replicate the adventure done also in Italy. I can’t wait to deeply explore all the hidden spots of the Arab Emirates”.

So, if you’d like to enjoy a tour, be sure to watch him embark in the venture to explore some of the most famous regions across the Peninsula; prepare yourself to view more than 1,000 km in 7 days, to discover the authentic Emirati traditions of the past and present, to discover museum and historical monuments, to learn more about UAE’s cultural heritage and explore the best natural hidden spots of this amazing country.
Brumotti will ride on a gravel bike, an exclusive customized bicycle prepared just for this tour. The Gravel bikes can be ridden almost anywhere, on the road and off it. Adventure-ready features like disc brakes, additional clearance for wider tires, and comfortable geometry let these bikes adapt to everything, from rugged terrain to winter exploration.
These bikes are for the days when you’re not sure where the journey will take you, but need the bike you know will get you there.
But together with the main bike, he will have in the support car a second bike with the same geometry but a different setup, used for his tricks. Cause – let’s not forget – he’s mainly a freestyle stunt biker.
Vittorio started his journey in Abu Dhabi and he was really impressed by some stunning buildings, and in particular the Sheikh Zayed Mosque and the Louvre Museum. But each place he visited left him something: the skyline of Dubai, his beloved desert, Jebel Hafeet, and many others places.
But who is Vittorio Brumotti? Born in Finale Ligure (Italy) and now living in Dubai (UAE), Brumotti is a renowned figure from Striscia la Notizia (an Italian television program) and, above all, a bike trial champion who is also a very talented stunt rider.
When he’s not attending bike events, Vittorio Brumotti is engaged in his bike riding activities on either a trial bike or Freestyle Road bike to promote this spectacular sport in the world. He is also the incredible holder of 10 Guinness World Records thanks to his talent; and in October 2012, Brumotti climbed Burj Khalifa (the tallest Dubai skyscraper in the world at 829.8 meters) on a bicycle in exactly two hours and 20 minutes, climbing 3700 steps.
Well done Vittorio! Keep on cycling!
