Emirati Yousif Mirza gave UAE Team Emirates its 10th win of the 2019 season. After winning the national road title earlier this week, Mirza won the road title.
“It’s with great joy and satisfaction that I’m able to defend my national champion jersey and gain my 10th title on the road,” Mirza said. “I’m so proud to be a part of this team and to also wear the UAE champion’s jersey in the group at WorldTour races. The race ran over 120km, and it was important to be ready right away because an escape went in the early kilometres. I saw that it was an important moment and I joined the move by the five riders, and then I won the sprint. Thanks to all the team and the sponsors, their support is always important“.
