Team LottoNL-Jumbo's Dylan Groenewegen placed second in Dubai Tour's stage-2, 190 km from Skydive Dibai to Ras al Khaimah, on Wednesday, February 7th. The 24-year-old rider from Amsterdam went close to win, riding Oltre XR4 in the wake of the stage-winner Elia Viviani. Riccardo Minali rounded out the podium.
Thanks to the result in Ras al Khaimah, Groenewegen - who had topped the opening stage 24 hours before - retained both the GC leader's blue jersey (+2 on Viviani himself) and the Points classification leader's red jersey (41 points).

Bianchi supplies the Team LottoNL-Jumbo with four models engineered with the revolutionary Countervail® Vibration Cancelling Technology:
  • 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
