Al Mussanah Sports City is a popular sailor hang-out. The riders won’t be too thrilled by that information and they head for the dry interior of Oman. They pass through Al Suwaq twice, the place the 2014 Tour of Oman started. The highest point is reached after exactly 100 kilometres of racing. All Huwayl lies at an elevation 224 metres and then the road goes slightly down and eventually stage 3 is as flat as a Qatar-stage.
The only factor possibly manipulating a bunch sprint could be cross-winds and echelons.
The finish is expected around 15:30 local time.
