Filippo Ganna (Ineos Grenadiers) won the stage 2 individual time trial of the UAE Tour. Team Qhubeka ASSOS had Max Walscheid finish in an impressive 7th place on the stage. Stage 2 of the UAE Tour saw riders take on a flat and fast 13km time trial course on Al Hudayriat Island. The open and exposed course meant the main factor for riders to deal with today, would be the wind. As one of the earlier starters, Walscheid set a solid time of 14’28” and was provisionally in 4th place. With still the majority of the field to go though, it was quite a wait.
