Team Sky's Chris Froome claims his first ever stage-race win by triumphing in the Tour of Oman.

Chris Froome has wrapped up his first ever stage-race victory by triumphing in the Tour of Oman.

France's Nacer Bouhanni won the final sixth stage but Team Sky's Froome kept up with his rivals on the 144km flat stage to ensure he didn't lose his 27-second lead.

The Kenyan-born rider had established that advantage by edging rival Alberto Contador in a thrilling sprint finish on Friday.

Froome is expected to lead Team Sky's charge at this year's Tour de France as the circuit is thought to favour his riding style more than defending champion Bradley Wiggins.
