With a fifth placed finish on the second stage between Bisha and Wadi Ad-Dawasir, Xavier De Soultrait has climbed into the top ten with solid ambitions for the forthcoming days.
“It was a very good stage. I started in sixth and passed two riders. There were some hesitations at times because the navigation is very hard this year, but we found every point and I finished with Sam, Toby and Kevin. We rode for 100 kilometres together and it was very nice because we pushed the pace a lot and the landscape was very, very nice”.
