American Taylor Phinney finished third in the second stage of the Dubai Tour to stay first overall.

PALM ISLAND ATLANTIS, United Arab Emirates (AP) - Marcel Kittel outsprinted rival Peter Sagan to win the second stage of Dubai Tour on Thursday, and American rider Taylor Phinney took third to pad his overall lead.

Kittel, riding for Giant-Shimano, arrived at the Palm Jumeirah artificial archipelago after a 76-mile ride from Dubai in a tight bunch, and then out-kicked Sagan of Cannondale Pro Cycling to win the stage in 2 hours, 50 minutes and 30 seconds.

Sagan and Phinney finished with the same time, giving the BMC Racing rider a one-second time bonus and increasing his overall lead to 15 seconds over teammate Steven Cummings.

The third stage Friday takes riders 101 miles to Hatta, a village in the mountains southeast of Dubai. The tour ends Saturday in Dubai.
