Sonny Colbrelli scored his first victory of the season for Bahrain-Merida in the final sprint of stage 4 at the Tour of Oman.The Italian beat Greg van Avermaet (CCC Team) and Clement Venturini (AG2R La Mondiale), in what was a hotly contested sprint that also included Alexander Kristoff (UAE Team Emirates). Kristoff was the favourite to win the day but finished a disappointing fifth.

In the final kilometres of the 131km stage, the peloton hurtled along the wide open and flat roads toward the finish line at the Oman Convention & Exhibition Centre. They caught the last three riders of the day's breakaway just before setting up for the final sprint, which took place on a slightly uphill drag to the line.
