Chris Froome (Sky) finished safely in the bunch to seal victory in the 2014 Tour of Oman, while Andre Greipel (Lotto-Belisol) sprinted to win his third stage win ahead of Nacer Bouhanni (FDJ) and Ireland’s Sam Bennett (NetApp-Endura).

Without any serious obstacles on route, Froome and Team Sky were never put under pressure by the men close to him on GC, and comfortably held onto his 26-second lead over Tejay van Garderen (BMC).
