The race itself isn't all that distinctive -- three short stages in four days at the tale end of the racing season -- but wow! The winner takes home a million dollars.

In November 6-9 2007, the United Arab Emirates will host the Abu Dhabi "Cycling Race of Champions." The winners of the Tour de France, Giro d'Italia and Vuelta a EspaƱa will be invited with their teams, along with the three teams that come out best in the teams classification of each Grand Tour. An additional three wildcard invites with their squads will round things out for a total field of 72 competitors.

It's good to see our oil money is going to something besides supporting terrorists. It's kind of old news, but I saw it first at Nashville Cyclist.

A million dollars? Chump change in the NFL.
