Tour of Oman 2014

February 18-23, 2014, As Suwayq Castle, Oman, Road - 2.HC

2014 Tour of Oman

The early season races in the Middle East ends with a crescendo this week, with the six-stage Tour of Oman offering the Grand Tour riders a chance to test their form, study their rivals and rub shoulders with the Classics riders, who will use Oman as a final block of racing before their first show down on the cobbles in Belgium at Omloop Het Nieuwsblad.

2013 winner Chris Froome (Team Sky) will make his season debut in Oman and immediately get to measure the quality of his winter training in South Africa with that of his Grand Tour rivals. It will be fascinating to see how the Kenyan-born Briton has handled the weight of the Tour de France yellow jersey on his shoulders during the off season and if his rivals have found anyway to match Froome stage race consistency and dominance.
