Tadej Pogačar seemed relaxed before the UAE Tour time trial, dancing to the music pumping out of his headphones after his warm-up, but the UAE Team Emirates leader was deadly serious and very fast during his ride, clocking a time of 10:01. 

That was the fourth best time behind stage winner Stefan Bissegger (EF Education-Easypost), and only Tom Dumoulin (Jumbo-Visma) was faster among the overall contenders for the opening WorldTour race of 2022.
