He did well in the U23 WC RR 2010 and beat some good riders at the Olympics RR.

I think Impey could be a real factor at a race like M-SR this year- he has a good sprint, has been riding well at Oman and at the TDU.

He waited and then rode away from Velits again?

What is your source if I may ask?
Source is Stybars' official page, it's his own words. He waited for Velits several times to help him. They had no radios, have they?

You can't blame the organizers too much, when the economy is ****.

Oman looks great race with a future, just hope live tv can be sorted for it in future years for it to grow. Teams want exposure live tv is best way of that.
