Britain's Chris Froome has won the Tour of Oman, his first major race victory.
Froome, who was runner-up in last year's Tour de France and the 2011 Vuelta a Espana, grabbed the red jersey on Thursday before winning stage five on Friday.
Former Tour de France winners Alberto Contador and Cadel Evans finished second and third respectively.
"At the beginning of the week I was thinking top five was a decent objective," said Froome. "It's important that I win my first stage race, it's a good start to the season. And I won ahead of those who will be my rivals on the Tour."
