Deceunick-Quick-Step's Sam Bennett has taken the victory of the penultimate stage at the UAE Tour, Tadej Pogacar maintains the lead of the General Classification.

The sixth stage of the Emirati competition was 165 kilometres long and took the riders from Deira Island to Palm Jumeirah over a flat course that made it once again a day for the fast riders.

Tony Gallopin, Alexey Lutsenko, Attila Valter, Mathieu Ladagnous, Iñigo Elosegui and Luis Leon Sanchez formed the escape of the day and they were caught with 25 kilometres to go, sentencing the stage to a bunch sprint.

Bennett showed to be once again the strongest sprinter of the competition and crossed the finish line ahead of Elia Viviani, Pascal Ackermann, David Dekker and Fernando Gaviria. Pogacar arrived to the finish with the peloton and managed to maintain the lead of the General Classification despite getting a 10-second penalty for pushing.
