Mar­cel Kit­tel cel­e­brates a suc­cess­ful de­fence of his GC ti­tle in the Dubai Tour. Along the way, the Ger­man took three stage wins, ce­ment­ing his po­si­tion as the most suc­cess­ful rider in the race's four-year his­tory. His path to GC suc­cess was helped along when the Hatta Dam stage, with its steep up­hill in­ish, was can­celled ow­ing to high winds. The race was de­cided on time bonuses, and Kit­tel's three stages gave him an 18-sec­ond cush­ion over Lot­toNLJumbo's Dy­lan Groe­newe­gen. Three Bri­tons - Tom Ste­wart, Mark Cavendish and Alex Dowsett - inin­ished in the top 10.
