Tour of Qatar 2016

Qatar winner Mark Cavendish
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.
