While it would appear that Mitchelton-Scott's Adam Yates has sewn up the overall classification at this year's UAE Tour, by virtue of his solo win at Jebel Hafeet on stage 3 on Tuesday, when he beat second-placed Tadej Pogacar by over a minute, Irishman Eddie Dunbar remains Team Ineos' best-placed rider, now up to 10th place overall after finishing in the same position on the stage.

The same summit finish will be used for Thursday's fifth stage, and Dunbar hinted that he might be among those riders planning on mounting a bid for a stage victory after moving himself up from his overnight position of 32nd place overall.

Cyclingnews is the world's leader in English-language coverage of professional cycling. Started in 1995 by University of Newcastle professor Bill Mitchell, the site was one of the first to provide breaking news and results over the internet in English. The site was purchased by Knapp Communications in 1999, and owner Gerard Knapp built it into the definitive voice of pro cycling. Since then, major publishing house Future PLC has owned the site and expanded it to include top features, news, results, photos and tech reporting. The site continues to be the most comprehensive and authoritative English voice in professional cycling.
