“Last year was a very complicated season, but the past is the past. I’m now looking ahead. I started the Muscat Classic with a podium that almost surprised me. It gave me a lot of confidence. I’d like to thank my teammates who did a superb job for me on this stage, and Embret was a great help when the road was steep. This victory is also theirs. I know it was close on the line, but as I crossed it, I just thought: “I’ve won! I celebrated a bit, but I preferred to wait for the photo finish to really do it. I knew that the final was difficult, and that I really had to stay among the frontrunners to compete in the sprint and have a good chance of winning. This success is good for the ARKEA-B&B HOTELS team and for me. I know how hard I’ve worked to get back to this level, I can be proud of myself, but especially right now, I’m very happy.”

“Amaury’s victory on stage 4 of the Tour of Oman is a pleasure for everyone. We know that last season was virtually a blank for him, so I’m really happy for him, it must be a relief. The team was at the top of its game today! Florian and Embret belong to the ARKEA-B&B HOTELS Développement structure – and both have shown that they are physically up to the task. It wasn’t an easy task today, but the lads did it! The other satisfaction of the day was Cristián’s 8th place. With Alessandro, they didn’t concede any time today with a view to the general classification which should be decided tomorrow on the slopes of Green Mountain, the end of the final stage of this Tour of Oman”.
