Primoz Roglic (Team Jumbo-Visma) retained UAE Tour leader's jersey by placing second in stage 3, 179 km from UAE University to Jebel Hafeet on Tuesday, February 26th. The 29-year-old Slovenian rode Oltre XR4 to complete his effort in 4:44:50, in the wake of the stage winner, World champion Alejandro Valverde, and preceding French David Gaudu.
2019 UAE Tour leader since the opening stage, a TTT dominated by his Team Jumbo-Visma, Roglic currently holds a 14-second advantage on Valverde and 39 seconds on Gaudu in the GC. Team Jumbo-Visma's Laurens De Plus is third in the Youth Classification.
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
