Al Mutrad Dominates 40km Road Race
Nasser Al Mutrad narrowly missed out on the top spot in the opening TT two weeks earlier when Omar Al Jarallah beat him by only two seconds. Al Mutrad took no chances in the first road race of the season. With an impressive show of power, he broke away soon after the end of the neutral section and rode unchallenged to the finish line to arrive nearly a minute ahead of his closest rivals.
In the sprint for second place, Al Jarallah beat Saud Al Mousa to make it an all Saudi podium in what is shaping up to be a season dominated by Saudi Nationals. The first junior home was another Saudi - Abdullah Murad, a talented young cyclist who is showing plenty of potential for the future.
In category B, it looks like the person to beat this season is going to be Florie Marinas. She came in with an impressive time and well ahead of her next competitor.
