Stage 1

Tour fo Qatar: Stage 1

Britain’s triple Olympic gold medallist Bradley Wiggins has the
leader’s jersey after winning the first stage of the Tour of Qatar, a 6km time-trial.

Wiggins, riding for American team Garmin, crossed the line first in six minutes and 34 seconds, just ahead of the Netherlands’ Hans Dekkers.

Garmin finished the 6 km course in 6′34″, one second faster than Quick Step and two seconds better than the russian squad Katusha.

For Katusha Cycling Team, which mainly chases the sone sprint finishes, it is a very good performance.

Garmin also topped the team standings – for the time of the fifth rider in each team to finish – ahead of Quick Step.

General classification leader Wiggins said:
“We made some real good preparation in Girona last for this. We wanted to put some details into it, even though we did not have the super big-guns here – Dave, Millar, Vande Velde and all those guys – but we still wanted to keep up the reputation that we are a good team time trial squad.”

The second stage, a 134km race, takes place on Monday.
