Caleb Ewan (Lotto-Soudal) powered to victory atop Hatta Dam at the UAE Tour 2019, taking the stage four win ahead of Matteo Moschetti (Trek-Segafredo) and overall leader Primož Roglič (Jumbo-Visma).

The lead in to the steep final 400m surge up to the dam was chaotic, but Ewan was able to stay well positioned towards the front of the bunch, and jumped after Alexander Kristoff (UAE Team Emirates) made his move first.
