Sonny Colbrelli (Bahrain-Merida) won stage four of the 2018 Dubai Tour, powering to victory up the steep Hatta Dam.

Elia Viviani (Quick-Step Floors) finished in sixth spot to retain his advantage at the top of the general classification with just one stage remaining in the race.

“The final 2kms were really challenging. Vincenzo did really a great job with the team. I had a mechanical problem, but in the end I took the win. The breakaway rider was very strong. We caught up with him just 20/30meters to go. It went fine for me.”, Colbrelli said.

With this win and the bonus seconds, Sonny Colbrelli climbed up to the overall 3rd position, just 4 seconds behind Elia Vivivani (Quick-Step Floors) before the tomorrow’s last stage.
