The Dubai Tour’s been ex­tremely good to the Ger­man pow­er­house over the years. Kit­tel’s now won eight stages and two GCs in four years; ex­actly half the to­tal num­ber of com­pleted stages since the race’s in­cep­tion. This year, Mark Cavendish punched his bars in frus­tra­tion on the fi­nal day af­ter the Ger­man handed out an­other whip­ping to the as­sem­bled sprint­ers. How­ever, Kit­tel beat Cavendish last year in Dubai but the for­tunes were re­versed at the Tour. At­tempt­ing to read the sea­son’s runes now is a fool’s er­rand.
