Speaking seconds after the stage finish, the UAE Tour winner Primoz Roglic said: It was windy from the start but as a team we finished the job the same way we started. We showed again that we are a very strong team. It's nice to have started with a Team Time Trial victory and kept the jersey till the end. As my first race of the year, it's great to begin with a stage race victory. Results show that we're ready for a promising season.

The stage winner Sam Bennett said: I needed that. The team did a fantastic job again. I tried to fight for Gaviria's wheel. Today I had the legs to finish it off. I knew if you could get a win here with all the top sprinters, it means you are not so bad. This is good for my confidence. I'm looking forward to the other nice races coming up.
