Tour of Oman Stage 5 Cancelled Due to Weather Conditions
After several adjustments to the parcours including a 95km stage with circuit of 3 laps after a neutralized section of about 10km, and then a reduction to two laps, there was then a complete stoppage for riders, staff, and the race organizers to discuss high heat and wind after a new start time of 13.30 local time.
Organizers eventually neutralized the race until the finish, meaning the stage was cancelled.
Punctures and other issues had been reported with the hazardous weather conditions.
This means there is only Stage 6 on Sunday remaining. The 133.5km final stage ends with a flat few kilometers.
