The first stage of the UAE Tour was marked by a victory for Tim Merlier, but the end of the race was also marked by a serious accident that involved several riders in the last meters of the stage. Harold Tejada, one of the runners involved in the accident, was unable to complete the stage alone.

The Colombian had to count on the help of Michele Gazzoli, his Italian teammate, to reach the finish line.
