The UAE Team Emirates heads to the Tour of Oman

Kristoff & Rui Costa tops the roster in the Middle East

The UAE Team Emirates’s season continues in the Middle East with its participation in the Tour of Oman. The 2.1 stage race runs February 16 to 21.


Simone Pedrazzini (Swi) will guide the following seven riders over the six stages:

– Sven Erik Bystrøm (Nor)

– Rui Costa (Por)

– Alexander Kristoff (Nor)

– Marco Marcato (Ita)

– Vegard Stake Laengen (Nor)

– Yousif Mirza (UAE)

– Jan Polanc (Slo)


Kristoff will search for a stage win, which he has been able to achieve every time he has participated in Oman in the last five years.


“I took eight wins in the Tour of Oman, I have a good relationship with this race,” the Norwegian sprinter explained. “I’m going to try to win another stage. In the Volta Valenciana I was close. My sensations are better and better and I’m very motivated.”
