German champion André Greipel has won the opening stage of the Tour of Oman. This is already the fourth victory of the season for the sprinter of Lotto-Belisol!

The early part of the stage was marked by a breakaway of 4 riders. They were in the front of the race for about 150 kilometers. 10k before the finish line, they were caught.

Quick Step seemed in control of the sprint until they opened the door by moving from the barriers to the centre of the road. Lotto Belisol jumped at the chance to open up their lead out protected from the side wind.

André Greipel: "I have full confidence in my leadout. Even without the mistake made by OPQS we could have won this stage, and we deserved it. We were chasing like crazy the entire day. When Sieberg started the sprint, it was pretty amazing, and very fast!"
