Rui Costa and Alexander Kristoff will share the captaincy of UAE Team Emirates once more at the Tour of Oman.

The two riders were already the leaders of the team at the Volta a la Comunitat Valenciana and they will repeat the formula at the Omani race. The 2.1. competition will be held between the 16th and the 21st of February.

"I took eight wins in the Tour of Oman, I have a good relationship with this race," Kristoff explained. "I'm going to try to win another stage. In the Volta Valenciana I was close. My sensations are better and better and I'm very motivated."
