UAE Tour – ST5
February 24th – March 3rd
THURSDAY, 28 FEB 2019
Sharjah Flag Island – Khor Fakkan, 181km. Flat stage with sprint finish.
Borut Bozic our sports director has been asked if he’s happy with 6th place and could we do better: “We can always do better. Last small climb, 7km to go, team had great position up front and then they lost it little bit latter. In last 3km, the road was narrower and there was wind from right side, while Haussler and Bauhaus were on the right side. Phil did good sprint today, he was in good position last km, but he only had just Haussler with him. No team had train last 2km, and the speed of the peloton was not as expected, and seeing how situation 1km to the finish was, Phil placed well.
