Sagan prevails in the hand in hand with Bernal in Dubai

Sagan se impone en el mano a mano a Bernal en Dubai

Peter Sagan won the inaugural Giro d’Italia Criterium Dubai, triumphing in a heads-up sprint against the 2021 Giro champion, Egan Bernal. The duo went just over a kilometer from finishing on the last lap of the 63km event, moving away from fellow escapees Marc Hirschi (UAE-Team Emirates), who finished third, and Geoffrey Bouchard (AG2R Citroën). In the end it was a comfortable sprint victory for three-time world champion Sagan., wearing the cyclamen jersey that he had as the winner of the points classification in the Giro, against a Bernal who was wearing the famous pink jersey of the winner of the Italian round.

The Giro d’Italia Criterium Dubai consisted of a 30-lap exhibition race that took place on a 2.1 kilometer circuit, whose course is shaped like the ‘Amore Infinito’ symbol that the Giro d’Italia uses to inspire the test winner’s trophy. “I am very happy to be here, and this is a special race for all of us who were in the Giro d’Italia “, highlighted the Slovak in statements collected by Cyclingnews.

The winner of the points classification was Elia Viviani (Cofidis), the most combative was Attila Valter (Groupama-FDJ), and Filippo Ganna (Ineos Grenadiers) won the prize for the fastest lap.
