It’s Kittel time

It looks as if every great sprinter wants to hold the KOTS title at least once. After Mark Cavendish (Team Dimension Data) had himself crowned King after the first stage of the Abu Dhabi Tour yesterday, that other present-day sprinting legend Marcel Kittel (Quick Step Floors) took the win – and the title – today.

Until the very end of the sprint, everyone watching thought quadruple sprint king Caleb Ewan (Orica-Scott) would take the title back from Cavendish, but he started celebrating a fraction too early, and got beaten by Kittel’s final jump.

The next KOTS title race will probably be stage 4, on the Yas Marina Formula One circuit.
