Tour of Oman 2014: stage five – photo gallery

All the action from the 147.5km run from BidBid to Green Mountain, caught through the lens of ASO photographer, Bruno Bade

Chris Froome detonated the 2014 Tour of Oman on the fifth stage by launching an unanswerable attack just two kilometres from the summit of Green Mountain. 

By the time the next fastest man, BMC Racing’s Tejay Van Garderen, had crossed the line, he had lost more than 20 seconds to Froome.

Others left trailing in the Froome-dog’s wake included former team-mate, Rigoberto Uran, now riding in the colours of Omega Pharma-Quickstep, who finished third.

World number one, Joaquim Rodriguez (Katusha), expected to offer a serious challenge to Froome in Oman, crossed the line 38 seconds back in fourth place, shell shocked.

Photographer Bruno Bade captured the key moments of a scintillating stage, and we bring you his images with the kind permission of race organisers, the ASO.
