The 2nd stage of the Abu Dhabi Tour came down to another expected bunch sprint with Elia Viviani (Team Sky) taking the spoils. Peter Sagan (Tinkoff-Saxo) was 2nd and Fabio Sabatini (Etixx-Quickstep) was 3rd. For MTN-Qhubeka p/b Samsung it wouldn’t be the best of days as our ace sprint card, Theo Bos crashed out of the tour halfway through today’s stage. Theo crashed heavily on his left side during a crash which also took Tom Boonen (Etixx-Quickstep) out of the race. Songezo Jim, racing in the white best young rider jersey also hit the tarmac in the same accident but was fortunately able to carry.
