The Qatari love their camels, and even more: they love to race them. Near Al Sheehaniya is a camel race track, actually pretty much looking just like a horse race track. The bunch leaves here for a ride taking them to the city of Al Khor.
Al Khor is located at a creek in the north of Qatar – in fact Al Khor means ‘creek’ in Persian.
The finish line is at the promenade. In the 2013 edition a stage with exactly the same route was won by Mark Cavendish.
The stage starts at 10:30 (CET) and finishes approximately 14:20.
