Peter Velits, Chavanel, Steegmans to Play Big Roles in Oman
Omega Pharma - Quick-Step Cycling Team will be busy this week in two highly prestigious races: the Tour of Oman being one of them, from Feb. 14 through the 19.
"After our lucky transfer in Qatar we're going to try to do well in Oman, too," said Sports Director Wilfried Peeters. "As for the arrivals adapted to sprinters, we're going to call on (Gert) Steegmans. Gert was a fundamental pillar for (Tom) Boonen's victory in Qatar; now it will be his turn to try and win a stage. For the general classification we can count on Sylvain Chavanel, who was already a major player in Argentina and on Peter Velits, although he hasn't raced as much as Sylvain. After the success in Qatar it would be exceptional to grab at least one stage success in nearby Oman."
