As is often the case in early season professional road racing, an early break formed on stage one of the Dubai Tour.
This break reflected the make-up of the teams at the race, with riders from BMC and local UCI WorldTour team UAE Abu Dhabi represented.
The course headed out from Dubai into the desert before heading back to the city for the rapid run in to the finish on the Palm Jumeirah.
With sprinters like Mark Cavendish, Marcel Kittel and British national road race champion Adam Blythe in attendance, the pace was high and the final metres of the race would be hotly contested.
