In the attack with Cancellara, Froome and Sagan

Styby finished sixth in the third stage of the Tour of Oman. The stage ended in a sprint again and André Greipel was the fastest. “It was a crazy final. It’s a shame that we couldn’t help Tom Boonen better.”

“The last kilometer of the stage was pretty hard with a climb of 12%. I knew from last year that it was a possibility to attack there. And so I went together with Christopher Froome. Later Fabian Cancellara and Peter Sagan joined us, but there was a strong headwind and the bunch caught us again.”

“I tried to help Boonen to the sprint at the end, but I had a small scuffle with Nacer Bouhanni. Fortunately nobody fell down. It’s a shame that I did not make better position for Tom, but I felt pretty good and my legs are working well.”
