New race report today, from the 2020 edition of BikingMan Oman Sprint with Jean-Philippe telling the story of his bike adventure in the sultanate. Especially how he had to fight against the heat and harsh sun, being rather sensitive to these conditions, and had an impressive comeback after a nasty puncture made for a forced stop in the first few hours of the race.
But keeping his motivation intact, he then took the challenge of the gravel and steep climbs of Jebel Shams to catch up to the middle of the pack before speeding up even more on his way to CP2. A shorter than expected rest and the last stretch to the finishline was already ahead of him.
Read on for the full story of his journey and his detailed experience.
