Astana's Alexey Lutsenko securesTour of Oman overall 

Astana's Alexey Lutsenko has finished a very successful Tour of Oman in which he took not only the overall victory but also took the win of three stages and wore the leader's jersey from the third stage

This is the second overall victory in a row for the Kazakh champion in the Tour of Oman and in a season in which Astana has taken five GC wins and five stage triumphs.

"I’m delighted to win this race again after last year’s victory," the Kazakh champion commented. "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."

The stage didn't run smoothly as riders like UAE Team Emirates' Alexandre Kristoff and Domenico Pozzovivo (Bahrain-Merida) were involved in a crash. "It was a hectic day, with a big crash and a lot of stressful moments," Lutsenko explained. "But all the time, especially Hugo Houle, Magnus Cort, and Zhandos Bizhigitov were next to me to keep me out of trouble.

"But now we’ve finished, I’m most of all very happy that we were able to work like this and to seal this overall win. We will have a small celebration, but the main goals of the season are still ahead of us."
