Tour of Dubai, Stage 3

Procycling - - Folio -

The in­au­gu­ral Tour of Dubai is RCS Sport’s an­swer to the ASO-owned Tours of Qatar and Oman and marks the first in the se­ries of races in the Mid­dle East. Like Qatar, the emi­rate’s ter­rain dic­tates a sprinter-friendly par­cours, leav­ing a hun­gry Mar­cel Kit­tel (Gi­ant-Shi­mano) to gob­ble up the stage wins. Af­ter Tay­lor Phin­ney won the open­ing time trial (and, as it would turn out, the GC), it was the im­pos­ing Ger­man pow­er­house who romped away with the re­main­ing three stages.
