Tour of Qatar 2016 Route stage 2: Qatar University – Qatar University
Tuesday, February 9, 2016 - Both start and finish of stage 2 in the 2016 Tour of Qatar are at the grounds of Qatar University in the capital Doha. At 135 kilometres, the course features (large) stretches of the route of the upcoming World Championships in Doha.
Following the start at The Qatar University, the riders leave Doha with West-Bay Lagoon on their right side. They pass Losail International Circuit, playground for tomorrow’s ITT, and head for Al Khor Airport and it’s there the way back begins. A little later the first intermediate sprint offers time bonuses of 3, 2 and 1 second.
Shortly after entering Doha, the second intermediate sprint lays waiting before a local circuit on the artificial island The Pearl is to be taken four times. Via West-Bay Lagoon the riders eventually end up where it all started – at the grounds of Qatar University.
With 850 metres left a 90 degrees turn takes the riders onto the long last straight, which is perfect for a thunderous bunch sprint.
At the finish 10, 6 and 4 seconds, the first three riders earn time bonuses in stage 2 of the 2016 Tour of Qatar.
