Pogačar took the 4th win of this year on the Jebel Hafeet, Hänninen 34th

There are 2 climbers really on fire at the beginning of this season, Nairo Quintana (Team Arkea Samsic) and Tadej Pogačar (UAE Team Emirates), who won today UAE Tour's 5th 162km long stage ahead of Alexey Lutsenko (Astana Pro Team) and the tour's leader Adam Yates (Mitchelton Scott). It was the second time during this year's UAE Tour the riders had to climb 10km to Jebel Hafeet at a stage's finish.

Two days ago Pogačar settled for 2nd, but this time he was the fastest in a 3 man final push to the line.

Jaakko Hänninen (Ag2r La Mondiale) was 34th of the stage and continues on the 25th position in the GC.
