Top sprinters struggle to find form and position against Tim Merlier at UAE Tour

    Coming into the UAE Tour, the sprint team to beat on paper were Bora-Hansgrohe. They had dominated the sprints at the Tour Down Under, the first WorldTour race of the season, and the trio of sprinters Sam Welsford, Ryan Mullen and Danny van Poppel were firing on all cylinders. 

    Two sprint stages in and it’s not exactly gone to plan. Stage 1 saw Mullen hit the deck hard in the large pileup and Welsford got disconnected from the lead-out pair, only managing fifth in the final sprint.
