Assuming that all goes to plan on the final day of this year’s Dubai Tour, the limelight should once again return upon the shoulders of the sprinters. A 137km finale to this increasingly popular race will see out the four days, a simple enough stage which should produce a frantic finish. With a few roundabouts and tight turns close to the line, there is still enough here to cause a surprise though.
Marcel Kittel looks to be in indomitable form right now and it is hard to see past him for the win on Stage 4. Another man enjoying a great start to the year is Giacomo Nizzolo, though he will have his work cut out in order to get past the powerful German here. His leadouts are certainly inconsistent, but should everything fall into place today for Elia Viviani, he is one of the few with potentially a potent enough turn of speed to beat Kittel.
