Alexey Lutsenko wins Tour of Oman 2019

Alexey Lutsenko (Astana) defended his Tour of Oman title after the sixth and final stage concluded in Matrah Corniche as Giacomo Nizzolo closed the 2019 edition with a stage win.

Nizzolo managed to pip compatriot Sonny Colbrelli (Bahrain-Merida) into second place, with another Italian, Davide Ballerini (Astana) in third.

Lutsenko finished safely in the pack to claim victory, having entered stage 6 with a 44-second lead over Domenico Pozzovivo (Bahrain-Merida) and a 47-second advantage over Jesus Herrada (Cofidis).

“I’m delighted to win this race again after last year’s victory,” said Lutsenko. “This time I felt even better during the whole race, and together with the support I received from my teammates this edition was even more successful with three stage wins. It’s nice to have this confirmation of my form, now it’s important that I bring this feeling to the first goals of the season.”
