Today Gazprom-RusVelo rider Mathias Vacek from the Czech Republic won the sixth stage at the UAE Tour. Mathias Vacek became the youngest winner of the UCI World Tour stage ever.
The whole day in the breakaway was worth it. Mathias Vacek, Dmitry Strakhov and Pavel Kochetkov worked hard from the beginning of the sixth stage and fought until the final. Mathias Vacek finished first, Dmitry Strakhov was third and Pavel Kochetkov closed the top-5.
Mathias Vacek on his victory: "Today I went into the breakaway to help my teammates. I also had a goal to try to attack from the breakaway in the final kilometres. On the kilometer 100 we had only a 1-minute advantage. It was hard to imagine that we will make it to the finish. It is unbelievable, I am very happy. We worked really hard and it is an amazing feeling to win! I think we have a great team right now with everyone being ready at their maximum. I would like to thank our team partners for their support!"
