Merhawi Kudus will lead team Dimension Data at Tour of Oman 2018. Despite he is only twentythree years old, the eritrean rider is facing his fifth season as a professional rider. After having ridden a discrete Volta a la Comunitat Valenciana, Kudus is ready to chase a positive result in the overall of a race in which he has already been notable in the past.”I am really looking forward to the Tour of Oman – debuts Kudus – it is a nice race with generally good weather“, revealing he’s very trusting.
The main reason why he is so confident with this race in because an uphill finish will, in all likelihood, carachterise the overall classification: “The climb up Green Mountain is difficult but it is a climb that suits me. I have finished close to the podium on that stage two years in a row and I would like to realise that good result this year. We have a strong team for Oman so a good GC result and stages are both possible for us this week” admits Kudus on the eve of 2018 Tour of Oman.
