In the 10th of February 2023 the peloton sees a new one-day race, the Muscat Classic. Right before the Tour of Oman, the classic which takes place in the same territory will provide one more opportunity for sprinters and classics riders to succeed.
The 173.7-kilometer long route follows familiar roads to those that have raced the Tour of Oman. It consists of some of the race's popular climbs, which are short and steep. It is a classic for the puncheurs and climbers, however a sprint isn't impossible. The Climb of Al Jissah has 1.1Km at 10% and summits with only 4 kilometers to go, the decisive attacks will come there, before a fast downhill finish into Al Bustan.
