UAE Tour 2021 highlights: Crosswind chaos on Stage 1

Watch the best of the racing from an action-packed opening stage of the 2021 UAE Tour.
It was supposed to be a day for the sprinters and a quiet stage in the general classification, but crosswinds right from the gun put paid to that in spectacular style.
Tadej Pogačar, Adam Yates and João Almeida made huge gains in the overall standings, while Mathieu van der Poel took advantage of big-name sprinters being dropped to win his first road race of the season.

    How do people keep sand off of the road? Actually, maybe they don't.

      The UAE is doing heavy efforts to control the spread of covid, even though we CAN add the audience in a socially distanced manner, do you really think the people would stand in that EXACT spot? We are not taking the risks!

    Hold your line during a sprint? Honestly, I see this crap every race, and only when there is an incident do they enforce the rules (and only some of the time). Someone needs to clean up cycling (not the doping... THE SPRINTING!).

      @Joe Harney I don't think the lack of spectators has anything to do with COVID. You can search for footage of the 2019 edition of this race to compare. Still no spectators. Even at the finish line there is no one there hardly. I see more people at the finish line of my amateur, uninteresting races.

      uhm his teammate was there and closed an important gap in the finale. On other races he also relies om them a lot, it's just that he has an agressive racing style so when most people start watching the broadcast he is already on the attack. But I have seen many races where his teammates did a lot of hard work for him and stayed until the finale. His team is world tour level.

      If someone was going faster than him on that side, he would have been cutting them off. But since nobody was coming up on that side, he didn't do anything wrong. He didn't endanger anyone because there was nobody coming up on that side.

Look at Julian Alaphilippe was like 10 yards away and still lost u can't make that decision to cut the line just cuz your ahead by a bike length 🤯

      @Bjorn Santens Sagan partiparticipated in mtb and cx in his youth. Has crazy mtb skills and is a legend on his own. MvdP is well on his way but no Sagan yet. He is a countryman of mine and we are proud to have such a rider in the Netherlands. But Sagan was 3 time World champion, won classics and 12 TdF races. That is crazy. And something like 5 green jerzies?

      @David Parrott that's why I also think MVDP's career on the road will be even better than sagan's Although Sagan already started winning on the road at a very young age, MVDP is already 25years old I think.

      @David Parrott I agree...tough he has the skills (not as many as MVDP of course) That was my point Sagan also had of silver or bronze medal in cyclo cross when he was a junior (again, the cx talent/results/titles of MVDP are much greater)

      @QrankChannel oil money? Oil makes 20% of the UAE’s Economy as of 2020, oil prices are nothing these days. We have the world’s largest sovereign fund and own most of the stakes in any country of the world 🌍 and in fact we control the worlds commodities and trade, do your research 🧐 before trash talking about a county that reached Mars.

      @Ho Timothy yes he didn’t harm anyone and nobody was going to pass him anyway, but that’s not how UCI rules work. UCI rules clearly say that you can’t deviate from your line in a sprint, even if the other riders aren’t next to you. I don’t care, and the riders here don’t care since he didn’t hinder any of them, but it’s stupid to have rules you’ll only apply when something goes bad or if there’s a crash. The UCI should either change their rules (re-phrase them), or apply sanctions every time (so here also) and not only when a crash happens

    3. J. de Bock
      J. de Bock

      that does only apply when the sprinter is side by side with someone, not when he is an entire bike length or so in the lead.
