Race chat: Stage 5 Oman; Stage 2 Algarve

Things are nearing the end in Oman, where Alessandro Ballan has spent the stage in a 3-man break with Matthe Pronk and Nikita Eskov. I've been checking in on it via Twitter--if you know of another medium, pipe up.

Meanwhile, in the Volta ao Algarve, the most recent ticker update has David Vitoria (Footon-Servetto), Jeremy Hunt (Cervélo), Jerome Baugnies (Topsport Vlaanderen-Mercator), Michal Golas (Vacancoleil) and Julien Fouchard (Cofidis) in a break 4:32 ahead of the peloton at km 51. Today's stage is 207.5 km, so there's still a ways to go.
