Speaking seconds after the stage finish, the winner made the following declarations: “Especially after the hard season I had last year, I’m incredibly happy that I could win today for my first race with my new team.
Everything has worked so well that I can’t think of any topic to raise to make it better.
The boys have done a good job. We were the strongest in the lead out and the timing was perfect. We made a plan and we executed it. I surely enjoy the win. This one has a special flavour.
As I said before the season, I restart at zero. I feel very good about today’s outcome. We’ll stay focused and hopefully there’s more to come for us at the Dubai Tour..” Press conference interviews and further details to follow. TOMORROW’S STAGE Stage 2 –
Nakheel Stage (183km) From Dubai city to Dubai city (Palm Jumeirah Atlantis) Sign-on procedures: 9.15-10.15am Alignment: 10.30am Start – KM 0: 10.45am (transfer 4,900m) Finish: Approx. 3.15pm Race Headquarters: DIMC – Dubai International Marine Club – Mina Seyahi, Al Sofouh Road, Al Seyahi Street, Dubai, U.A.E. ROUTE A stage of two distinct parts. The first part is just outside the metropolis, partially in the desert, the second part within Dubai Marina to end in Palm Jumeirah, in front of the Atlantis “door”. The first part will pass next to the Camel Track, the Al Qudra bike path, the Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Sports Complex pool and through the desert. The second part returns into the city touching Dubailand, the Jumeirah Golf Estates and Dubai Sports City. It then heads to the finale on the Palm through an underwater tunnel before the last kilometres, with the halfway point on the artificial island. From here there will be a little over 3km before the final sprint. Last kilometres On the Palm, many clearly marked rumble strips run across the carriageway along the descent and the climb, and there is a U-turn 3,200m before the finish line. The final 3km are virtually straight (although on a constantly slightly-bending road), with some roundabouts along the way. The home stretch is 800m long (still bending slightly), on a 7m-wide asphalted roadway.
