Marco Canola
:”I’m happy for today's result, especially looking towards the classification. This winter I trained really well, with a part of the squad we moved to Spain to get ready for the first part of the season and step by step the first results are coming. Today in the finale I talked with Battaglin and I had the chance to play my chance. I started my sprint early with 350 meters to go, because I was closed by other riders. I did a good come back, achieving this positive result”. 

Roberto Reverberi, Sport Director
:”Guys are racing very well and today too we reached good results between the most part of the best world riders. Our strategy was to get a positive result with Battaglin and Canola who had led out him in the last km, found the space for his sprint. However Enrico (Battaglin, ndr), is arrived into the top-10. This is an important signal that his shape is growing and he had recovered from Qatar’s fall. Today also Boem went again into the early breakaway winning both the intermediate sprints. Only negative thing is the minutes lost by Locatelli for general and youth classification”. 

Tomorrow Tour of Oman will present a decisive stage from Wadi Al Abiyad to Ministry of Housing for 173 km. The final will be really demanding with four steep uphills.
