From the very beginning of the stage, the Kazakh rider Dmitriy Gruzdev attacked, a bit after two other riders joined him. Riders spent the whole day in the breakaway and were caught only 2,5 km before the finish line. The last stage of UAE Tour finished with massive sprint won by Sam Bennet, the overall winner of the race is Primož Roglič.
- The plan was to go to the breakaway and try to go till the finish. Yes, there are the best sprinters in the world, but sometimes team could watch to each other deciding who will work to close the gap, and it is a chance for the breakaway in increase the time. Unfortunately, we were caught less than 3 km before the finish, but anyway it was good day for me, I tried and did a good training, - said Dmitriy Gruzdev after the finish.
