Team Jumbo-Visma's Primoz Roglic delivered an outstanding show of force in UAE Tour stage-6, 180 km from Ajman to Jebel Jais top on Friday, March 1st. Brilliantly led by teammate Laurens De Plus, the Slovenian GC leader rode Oltre XR4 to masterfully outsprint Tom Dumoulin - passed in the final meters - and young Frenchman David Gaudu, winning in 4:15:39.
With one stage to go, Roglic strengthened his GC lead: the closest rival, Alejandro Valverde, is now 31 seconds behind him, whilst Gaudu is third with a 44-second gap. Laurens De Plus is ninth overall (+1:45) and third in the Youth Classification. The UAE Tour will be completed with the stage-7, 145 km from Dubai Safari Park to City Walk, dedicated to the fastest wheels of the bunch.
Bianchi supplies the Team Jumbo-Visma with four models engineered with the Bianchi CV system powered by Countervail: 
•             Oltre XR4, designed to maximize the aerodynamic advantage and control 
•             Specialissima, the ultralight frame, perfect for GC riders, it’s extra stiff for increased traction and stability at high speeds, and maximum control on the descents 
•             Aquila CV, the ultimate time trial machine, designed to increase power output and rider's energy, with maximum control with each pedal stroke 
•             Infinito CV, the ideal bike for the Classics, providing remarkable control on uneven surfaces and reducing muscular fatigue
