Remco Evenepoel wins the UAE Tour The World Champion racked up his 11th success in a stage race, after a stellar week for the Wolfpack
Remco Evenepoel added another notch to his belt, the first since triumphing at last year’s World Championships, sealing the GC victory at the fifth edition of the UAE Tour, which came to a conclusion on the demanding gradients of Jebel Hafeet (10.8km, 6.6%), the second-highest peak in the Emirates. It was another important step forward for Soudal Quick-Step’s 23-year-old Belgian, who climbed onto the highest spot of the podium for the 38th time in his career.
Soudal Quick-Step leave the Emirates with a total of four victories: the general classification, the TTT and the pair of stages brought by Belgian Champion Tim Merlier, who also took home the green jersey – the first time in his career that he won the points classification in a World Tour race.
