Bob Jungels powered away from the peloton to win stage one of the Tour of Oman and reached 100kph in the process
Jungels powered away from the select group he found himself in in the last three kilometres, using his phenomenal time trialling ability to solo to the line.
The Luxembourg champion’s Strava statistics show the phenomenal power he put down as he got his head down and sped to the line, averaging over 350W for the last three kilometres.
As he crested the final climb – travelling at over 50kph, Jungels then sped away from his chasers, reaching 101.2kph on the steep, but not technical, descent, even though he wasn’t pedalling for much of it.
Unsurprisingly, Jungels claimed the KoM on the Strava segment of the descent – named Fat Freddy’s Drop – beating BMC‘s Marcus Burghardt.
Jungels said he’d been planning that attack for a few days, and it certainly paid off in the best possible way.
