Kristoff Leads the Tour of Oman and Other Cool News from the World of Cycling

By Monica Buck

Another Monday is here and our news from the world of cycling with it. So, what did you miss?

Lutsenko wins stage two

Last year’s overall winner proved that the Tour of Oman really suits him. The 26-year-old Astana rider attacked prior to the final climb and soloed to victory, jumping to second place overall, 3 seconds behind Alexander Kristoff. However, the Norwegian led the poursuivants across the finish line and proved that he aims for that GC victory as well. Should be great fun in the upcoming stages!
