Basque in Glory: Martin Makes Podium Whilst Pogacar Takes Youth Classification
Dubai, UAE, April 15, 2019:  It continues to be a mesmeric month for UAE Team Emirates, with the team picking up honours at the Tour of the Basque Country.
 
This time it was the turn of Irishman Dan Martin, who finished second in the General Classification (GC), 29 seconds behind eventual winner Ion Izagirre (Astana Pro Team). It was a great overall performance from Martin and his teammate, Tadej Pogacar who also found himself in the top 10 of the GC standings (finishing 6th). But it was in the Youth Classification where the young Slovenian really impressed, topping the standings by a whopping 2:08 from his nearest rival. 
 
Commenting following the race, Martin said: “We were very strong throughout the stage, it was a very nice day for the team. We all found ourselves racing with great motivation, everyone had important goals and so we pushed hard to the finish line. I would have liked to have won the final stage, but Yates took a small advantage on the last climb. I knew I would have won if I managed to come back to him, but it was a bittersweet ending. I did, however, take second place and second overall, and that means something.”
 
The results come off the back of solid performances by UAE Team Emirates at the Belgian Classics, where Alexander Kristoff picked up the race victory at Gent-Wevelgem, and third place at the Tour of Flanders.
