Deceuninck – Quick-Step Floors Cycling Team (United Arab Emitares) - Press Release: The Irishman benefitted from a flawless lead-out and came out on top for the second time in three days at the World Tour race.
Sam Bennett unleashed another spectacular burst of speed and added another victory to his palmares, this time in Palm Jumeirah – the manmade Dubai archipelago – where stage 6 of the UAE Tour concluded after 165 quiet kilometers. Bennett, who on Wednesday claimed the first World Tour bunch sprint of the season, relied again on the well-drilled lead-out train of Shane Archbold and Michael Mørkøv, who stomped their authority over the final kilometer and delivered him in a perfect position with 200 meters to go.
Once he came out of the Dane’s wheel, last year’s Tour de France green jersey winner never looked back and powered like a locomotive, comfortably winning by two bike lengths, a success that confirmed he is the most in-form sprinter in this start of the season. It was Sam’s ninth victory since joining Deceuninck – Quick-Step, one for which he praised his teammates.
