Tour of Oman 2015

Tour of Oman 2015Edition 6 of the Tour of Oman was held February 17-22. Mountains, hills, sprints, it was all on the menu. Rafael Valls took the overall by winning the stage to Green Mountain, making the Spaniard the successor of Chris Froome. (Slideshow route/profile)

Valls was a suprise winner with Vincenzo Nibali, Tejay van Garderen and Alejandro Valverde also at the start. The day after his Green Mountain victory another hilly ride, featuring the 20% Bousher Alamrat, was neutralized due to harsh weather. This was good news for Valls and in the closing stage he secured his overall win.

In the underneath scheme you’ll find details on all individual stages.
