The Vital Concept Cycling rider produced an exciting victory during the sprint at the first stage of the Omani round, to become the classification’s very first leader.
Bryan Coquard achieved a thrilling victory for Vital Concept Cycling during the 1st stage of the Tour of Oman. The leader of the French team claimed victory during a propitious stage for sprinters due to its downhill bias, with Coquard being the fastest with a time of 3h 58’ 41”, after the peloton had neutralized the breakaway a few kilometers from the finish line.
The race podium was rounded off with Mark Cavendish and Nizzolo Giacomo, second and third respectively. Which makes Coquard the very first leader of the Tour of Oman, where he will have to defend his leader’s jersey during the second stage to be held tomorrow Wednesday over a distance of 167 km.
