Tour of Oman

The Tour of Oman is part of the ongoing attempt to globalise cycling and will cover Muscat, Al Batinah region, Al Dhakaliya region and Al Dhahirah region. Hundreds and thousands of spectators are likely to witness the Tour which will complete 5 stages, 1 time trial over a distance of 850 kms.

The 20 teams competing in this event include the UK based Team Sky. After the success of the Tour in Qatar, big signing Mark Cavendish will once again lead the team in the desert of Oman. The full squad will be:

1 – CAVENDISH Mark GBR
2 – APPOLLONIO Davide ITA
3 – ROWE Luke GBR
4 – EISEL Bernhard AUT
5 – HAYMAN Mathew AUS
6 – HUNT Jeremy GBR
7 – STANNARD Ian GBR
8 – SUTTON Christopher AUS

Mark Cavendish comes into the event with two great stage victories in Qatar and the outlook is bright for his future in at Team Sky. The one disappointment that may come from Qatar however is the lack of cohesion in the lead out train. Often leaving Cavendish to follow the wheel of other sprinters. We will have to wait and see if Team Sky can get the train working well and bring the Manx man safely to the line.
