TOUR OF OMAN GC

1 Christopher Froome (GBr) 23:28:33
2 Alberto Contador Velasco (Spa) 0:00:27
3 Cadel Evans (Aus) 0:00:39
4 Joaquim Rodriguez Oliver (Spa) 0:00:50
5 Rinaldo Nocentini (Ita) AG2R 0:01:13
6 Johann Tschopp (Swi)
7 Vincenzo Nibali (Ita) 0:01:19
8 Kenny Elissonde (Fra) 0:01:34

10 Maxime Bouet (Fra) 0:01:57
11 Daryl Impey (RSA) 0:02:01
12 Zdenek Stybar (Cze) 0:02:08

Yeah, the boy done good, nobody is missing from that roster except
Valverde. An item of interest is the presence of Zdenek Stybar at 12.
This guy knows how to ride a bike that's for sure and he should have
room to improve.

Cadel did bloody well here too. I'm surprised he held off Purito.

Oh yes that's right, for some reason I appear to have mentally written
Cadel off for this season, possibly somewhat prematurely.

This clip of three of the best climbers in the world trying to be
sprinters should put paid to that notion. The bike 'throws' are fairly
amusing.

Professional bike riding has always been a performance in both
senses. It is meant to amuse, that is its purpose. Froome acts well
and is expected to take the lead role for the end of season
festivities.
