Tour of Oman 2012

February 14-19, 2012

Tour of Oman 2012

In just its third year in existence, the Tour of Oman has already become one of the most compelling races of the early season thanks to the sheer diversity of the riders that flock to the six-stage event.

 

The variety of Oman’s topography, coupled with the amenability of its climate, mean that the race has attracted a high-quality field: world champion Mark Cavendish (Sky), Tour de France contenders Andy Schleck (RadioShack-Nissan) and Vincenzo Nibali (Liquigas-Cannondale) and classics hunters such as Fabian Cancellara (RadioShack-Nissan) and Tom Boonen (Omega Pharma-QuickStep) are among those lining up.
