A fresh peloton raced the 124-kilometre ride from the Dubai International Marine Club to City Walk as Friday’s fourth stage
was cancelled due to high winds.

Kittel wanted his third win in the four completed stages and in the ensuing bunch sprint, he timed his finish to perfection crossing the line first and sealing a successful Dubai Tour title defence.

An interesting week for Kittel.
