Uphill finish at the UAE Tour today. It was the last chance for the big of the general classification to try to take the overall leadership from Roglic. But the Slovenian showed to be the strongest and took today’s win too. The best-placed rider for the Astana Pro Team was Jan Hirt who finsihed in 13th place, twelve second behind the winner.
“In the final we worked to help Hirt that finished with the best in the uphill sprint. Before we worked hard in front of the peloton to help to chase the early breakaway. I tried to enter the day’s breakaway today, but I got stung by a bee and I needed to receive medical assistance in the first part of the race. Tomorrow the final stage awaits the sprinters”
