Tour of the United Arab Emirates: Pogacar wins stage 4 in sprint, Bardet is sixth

Tadej Pogacar was the strongest this Wednesday for the fourth stage of the Tour of the United Arab Emirates between Fujairah Fort and the summit of Jebel Jais. This first real mountain stage was a sprint.

A win in the triple sprint

A victory that became apparent for the 23-year-old Slovenian in the final moments. With eight kilometers to go, he launched his first attack alongside his UAE Team Emirates teammate Rafal Majka. An offensive that has broken through the well-assembled peloton for a few kilometers.

Tom Dumoulin, third of Tuesday’s stage, or even Stefan Bissegger, overall leader, found themselves falling out of the lead group that included Auvergnat’s Romain Bardet.

Tour of the United Arab Emirates: Bardet far behind in the time trial, Bissegger stage winner this Tuesday

At the end of what was eventually a three-part sprint, Pogacar claimed the 31st win of his career while also bagging the Tour leader’s jersey in place of a Stefan Bissegger who won too early to drop out of the top 10. He is ahead of Adam Yates (INEOS) and Aleksandr Vlasov (BORA). Romain Bardet was sixth, three seconds behind the stage winner. A positive day for the Brioude native.

On Thursday, the riders of this Tour of the United Arab Emirates can expect a 182-kilometer stage between Ras Al Kaimah and Al Marjan Island.
