Sam Bennett (Deceuninck-Quick-Step) has taken his second victory of the season at the sixth stage of the UAE Tour.

The Irish man was the first rider to cross the finish like at the Palm Jumeirah -the man made Dubai archipelago- after his team did an outstanding job again by protecting him throughout the stage and with the lead-out train, in which Shane Archbold and Michael Morkov put him again in an ideal position.

"It feels amazing, but I wouldn't have done it without my teammates today, who were again tremendous, just like on the first stage I won here," said the rider. "At the end of the day, it's down to them and my very fast bike. The more sprints we do together, the better we're getting. It's just about repeating the same thing and making decisions in the final. We're really getting to know each other and we're pretty much nailing it at the minute.

"I pushed hard this off-season because I wanted to have a strong start to the year and I'm happy to see it pays dividends. We're having a great time here in the UAE Tour and it feels great to repay the team's confidence and work. At the same time, it bodes well for Paris-Nice, which will be my next appointment of the season."
