The 15th edition of the Tour of Qatar was won by Mark Cavendish. He wore the golden jersey as of day one, but after a brilliant performance by his teammate Boassan Hagen in the individual time trial the Norwegian looked ready to take the overall win. However, he punctured at the wrong moment in stage 4 and Cav took over. (Slideshow route/profile)
Alexander Kristoff won three stages, but a bad performance in the ITT cost him the victory. Just like in 2015.
