The Tour of Qatar

The Tour of Qatar

start time: Sunday 15:00 AST (2:00:00 PM your time)
approximate finish: 15:55 AST (2:55:00 PM your time)

The Tour of Qatar is a road bicycle race race held in Qatar and is part of the UCI Asia Tour. The race exists of a men’s competition over six stages since 2002. It is one of the most important events in asian cycling world.

The event starts with a 6 km TTT in Doha, the capital city of Qatar. Will teams really be flying in extra/time trials bikes and equipment for a 6 km TTT? It is interesting that the first stage is the only possibility for a non-sprinter team to obtain something. The rest of the stages are flat, and no doubt, one of the sprinters will be the first.
