UAE Team Emirates' Alexander Kristoff wins final stage
The end to the Tour de France for UAE Team Emirates (UTE) could not have been more glorious as Alexander Kristoff took home the iconic final stage win, finishing second in the points standings. It was also a historic day for UAE Team Emirates as Dan Martin picked up the award for the most combative rider of the Tour, after several inspirational attacking performances across key mountain stages. It’s the first award for Martin since joining the Emirati formation at the start of the 2018 UCI World Tour season.
