Stage 2 of the Dubai Women's Tour nearly finished in a massive crash. The organisers managed to bring unnecessary chaos to a bunch sprint by funnelling the peloton from a wide road to half its size with barely any bollard and signage. A few race marshals panicked as they saw that the leading sprinters would have missed the course and waved frantically. Luckily and incredibly the eventual winner, Samah Khaled (Team UAE), who had opened the sprint early, just about managed to swerve into the right side of the road and kept the lead all the way to the line.

Tom Dumoulin had to postpone his return to racing even further after being treated for intestinal parasites. He will now skip

Flanders Classics, the organisers of races like Flanders, Omloop, Gent-Wevelgem, Dwars door Vlaanderen, De Brabantse Pijl, have launched a three-year plan to close the gap between the men's and the women's races. Their aim is to include Scheldeprijs in the Women's calendar and eventually equalize prize money.

Peter Sagan was forced to deny his involvement in a cryptocurrency scam. The bogus scheme uses fake quotes from celebrities to promise people to become millionaires in a few days.

Pirmin Lang, a former pro rider for IAM Cycling and up to now a DS for the Swiss Racing Academy team (currently racing at the Tour Cycliste International du Var et des Alpes Maritimes), has confessed to cheating and doping during his career. He was investigated as part of the Aderlass operation in Austria. He has confessed using social media but has made no other names, keeping to the now too obvious code of omertá between cheating riders.
