Astana’s leader Gorka Izagirre, supported by his teammates finished inside the main group.
- We knew, this day would be a stressful one and we were ready for it. The team was always around Gorka Izagirre, he always had a good protection. So, for us everything went well. It was a sprinter’s stage, so we just had to pass it without any problem and we did it, - commented Dmitri Sedoun, sports director of Astana Pro Team.
Tomorrow will be held the third stage of the race: 179 km from UAE University to the top of the hard climb Jebel Hafeet.
