The winners on the promenade of Doha were, in successive order, Andrea Guardini, Arnaud Démare, Mark Cavendish and (again) Arnaud Démare.
With 124 kilometres the stage is 10,5 kilometres longer than in 2014. Is it going to be three times a charm for Démare?
With 50 kilometres done the riders arrive in Doha. Following a retour-ticket to the artificial island The Pearl Qatar the last 34 kilometres are six rounds in the city centre of capitol Doha, each 5,7 kilometres.
The stage offers one intermediate sprint (on the closing circuit), while the winner takes 10 bonus-seconds on the line.
Niki Terpstra took the GC in 2014 and is the leader at the moment, with a 6 seconds gain over Bodnar and 11 seconds over Kristoff.
The finish is expected around 14:20 local time.
