Today’s 176km stage was seen as the only clear sprint friendly stage of this year’s Tour of Oman and so it was no surprise to see a big charging peloton coming into Naseem Park to decide the stage. Katusha and Quickstep-Floors ensured this was the case by controlling the 6-rider breakaway which formed in the opening 10km of today’s stage. Team Dimension Data for.
The European racing season is in full swing and Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka are motivated to be starting the Volta ao Algarve, which gets underway tomorrow in Albufeira, Portugal.
