Giacomo Nizzolo (Dimension Data) secured a victory at the Tour of Oman on the final sprint stage on the Matrah Corniche. The Italian beat Sonny Colbrelli (Bahrain-Merida) and Davide Ballerini (Astana). A frustrated Andre Greipel (Arkea-Samsic) felt that it was a dangerous sprint and that Nizzolo should be disqualified.
It wasn't a smooth stage for Alexander Kristoff (UAE Team Emirates), either, who crashed and was unable to finish due to a deep wound on his arm.
Alexey Lutsenko (Astana) won his second consecutive Tour of Oman, dominating the race after winning three of the six stages. Second overall was Domenico Pozzovivo (Bahrain-Merida), with third going to Jesus Herrada (Cofidis).
