PREVIEW | Tour of Oman 2023 stage 5 - Queen stage to Green Mountain to decide overall classification

From the 11th to the 15th of February racing will resume in the Middle East, with the traditional Tour of Oman bringing an interesting set of stages that will suit sprinters, climbers and classics riders simultaneously. Stage 5 will be the queen stage which will decide the overall classification, as the riders head towards the famous Green Mountain.

Finally, the queen stage. Jabal Al Akhdhar, or as it's more commonly known the 'green mountain', is 5.7 kilometers at 10.5% and will mark the end of the Tour of Oman. It is an almost completely pan-flat day but the final climb is a brute. On wide desert roads, the inconsistent final climb is know for generating massive gaps, and it will decide the overall classification.

Stage 5: Samail - Jabal Al Akhdhar, 152.2 kilometers
