Tour of Colombia Stage 6
The racing was explosive in Colombia this past week. And the final stage did not disappoint. Nairo Quantana (COL) opened his account with a strong performance that included getting knocked off his bike by a spectator with 5km to go. Miguel Angel Lopez (COL) of Astana Pro Team took the overall. Just like Quick-Step, Astana has been on a tear of victories already in 2019. There were 4 Colombians within a minute of each other on GC and only 4 seconds separated first and second. Notable: 13 Colombians rounded out the top 15 placings.
Tour of Oman Stage 1
Good to see Alexander Kristoff (NOR) get a win. After a difficult 2018 the Norwegian opened his account early this year.
Tour of Oman Stage 3
Crosswinds caused some serious racing to occur in the last 60km as echelons formed the peloton split. Alexander Kristoff (NOR) road well making the final selection of 35 riders but would come unhitched on the uphill finish. Alexey Lutsenko (KAZ) would win another stage and add yet another win for the Astana squad. It is the teams 4th win in the last 5 days. Notable: Greg Van Avermaet (BEL) finshed 3rd and is showing good form ahead of the Spring Classics.
