Stage 2 of the Dubai Tour was yet another sprint finish, with Elia Viviani (Team SKY) taking the win and moving into leader of the General Classification.

Silvan Dillier was BMC Racing Team’s man in the four-rider break which went away at the 12 kilometer mark, eventually gaining a 2’02 gap.

The breakaway was pulled back at the 168 kilometer mark as the peloton made its way through the final 10 kilometers of the stage through Palm Jumeirah.

A couple of crashes in the final kilometers split the peloton, leaving a small group to sprint for the finish. Philippe Gilbert was BMC Racing Team’s best-placed rider, finishing 14th in the sprint. Silvan Dillier sits 16th overall on the General Classification, 10 seconds behind Viviani.

BMC Racing Team Sports Director Max Sciandri said the team is happy to have made the break on the first two stages of the race.

“It’s always nice to have someone in the breakaway with Loïc Vliegen yesterday and Silvan Dillier today. Silvan told me this morning that he was feeling good and wanted to test the legs, so he had a good run in the breakaway today.

“The team is still here to protect our team leader Philippe Gilbert and tomorrow’s stage finishing on the Hatta Dam will be an important one in determining the GC.”

Stage 3 tomorrow is 172 kilometers from Dubai International Marine Club to Hatta Dam.
