Demanding final at the UAE Tour

The UAE Tour continues with the first of two mountain stages. A challenging 10km climb with an average gradient of 7.4% and 1st category finish atop Jebel Hafeet.

The final ascent was the key of today’s stage 3, with the Astana Pro Team that worked to support their leaders, both for a stage win and for the general classification: We did great team work in protecting our teammates Jan and Gorka today at the UAE Tour. We tried to stay in front when the final climb started and then Hirt took a very good tenth place atop Jebel Hafeet”
