Giacomo Nizzolo claimed Team Dimension Data’s second win of the season, taking top honours at today’s final stage of the Tour of Oman. Nizzolo outsprinted fellow countrymen Sonny Colbrelli (Bahrain) and Davide Ballerini (Astana). Ryan Gibbons finished in 5th.
Nizzolo’s win brings a good week of racing in Oman to an end, where Team Dimension Data where part of the action the whole week with multiple strong finishes, thanks to Gibbons and Nizzolo.
“I am super about today’s victory. The team did a great job all day long. It was not an easy sprint because there were some climbs before reaching the finishing circuit and also there was a kicker with 3km to go. All I can say is I am super happy and thanks to the team, we need to carry on like this now going into the next races.” – Giacomo Nizzolo.
After wearing the white jersey for 4 stages, Gibbons finished 5th overall in the Youth category. Jacques Janse van Rensburg was our best placed rider on the GC, finishing 12th overall with our African Team claiming 2nd place in the team competition.
