Final KM: Dubai Tour Stage One

It was pan flat, it was a little nervy and it was very VERY fast at the end. Yes sirree desert racing is GO!

Stage 1: Dubai to Palm Jumeirah, 181km

 

Marcel Kittel and the Quick-Step Floors guys made it look easy as he delivered their 7th win of the season. Dylan Groenewegen (Lotto-NL-Jumbo) placed second with Mark Cavendish (Dimension Data) in third – a superb effort given he’d ridden the last 4km on a flat tyre.

Highlights from the Global Cycling Network team…

We LOVE  the Quicksteppers hugs, and Bob Jungels was impressive bringing back the break of the day.
