Filippo Ganna is expected to extend his run of time trial victories to eight next Monday, with the 13km time trial around the Al Hudayriat Island cycling track at the UAE Tour seemingly perfect for his pursuiting skills and power. 

It would be crazy to bet against Ganna winning the stage in the World Champion’s rainbow jersey. He has won every time he has ridden since the Italian national championships last summer, adding the World time trial title in Imola, the Tirreno-Adriatico time trial and all three TTs at the Giro d’Italia. The Ineos Grenadiers rider even added a rolling road race stage to Camigliatello Silano to his palmares to prove he is far more than just a chrono man.
