Dubai Tour Wrap up

The 2017 Dubai Tour has come and gone. Within the five stages on hand we had one pretty dominant sprinter with Marcel Kittel, a punch in the face courtesy of Astana’s Adriy Grivko, wind that canceled a stage, and some stunning backdrop building architecture. Here is the wrap up of each stage of the 2017 Dubai Tour.
