UAE Tour. Stage 5. Alexey Lutsenko is 2nd in super close final atop Jebel Hafeet after phenomenal stage
The Kazakh champion Alexey Lutsenko finished second in a very close uphill sprint finish atop Jebel Hafeet climb, which ended the fifth stage of the UAE Tour. The Astana rider launched a very strong sprint, passing the last corner on the first position, but missed just a little to win the stage being passing by the Slovenian Tadej Pogačar right on the finish line. However, thanks to this performance Alexey Lutsenko protected his third position in the general classification of the race.
