Oman (2) - Eiking and Doubey hang on to elite group

Odd Eiking and Fabien Doubey were able to follow the elite riders in the second stage of Tour of Oman (2.HC, 13-18/02). Four riders made breakaway towards Al Bustan, but were caught in the final by the reduced peloton. On the last climb Al Jissah the peloton splashed further apart under the pace of Astana. Fabien Doubey and Odd Eiking were able to join an elite group of 14 riders with Nibali, Van Avermaet and Lopez. Nathan Haas sprinted to victory in Al Bustan, Eiking and Doubey finished as 12th and 14th in the same time as the winner. In the GC both our WGG riders are in the top-10. On Thursday, the riders will head towards Wadi Dayqah Dam on a rolling terrain.
