The Tour of Oman has confirmed the participation of some outstanding riders for the 2019 edition of the race. The competition will be held between the 16th and the 21st of February.

The 10th edition of the race will cover versatile terrains and some days will be good for the sprinters, others for the puncheurs and the GC will be decided once more in the climb of Jabal Al Akhdhar or Green Mountain. For the final sprints, the race has confirmed riders like Nacer Bouhanni (Cofidis), Andre Greipel (Arkea Samsic), Bryan Coquard (Vital Concept-B&B Hotels) and Sonny Colbrelli (Bahrain Merida).

For the rolling stages, all eyes will be on the Olympic Champion Greg Van Avermaet (CCC Team) who already knows what it is to take a victory in this race. And for the deciding stage, Astana's Alexey Lutsenko will return to defend the title that he got in the 2018 edition of the race.

Another riders that will be at the start line of the Tour of Oman include Alexander Kristoff (UAE Team Emirates), Niki Terpstra (Direct Energie), Oliver Naesen (AG2R La Mondiale), Nathan Haas (Katusha Alpecin), Jesus Herrada (Cofidis) and Domenico Pozzovivo (Bahrain Merida), among others.
