With winds blowing at 45 kmph, the riders leave Beachline Bay Resort. Soon Steven Tronet, Jesse Sergent and Tim Declercq break clear to race to a maximum advantage of almost 4 minutes.
While entering the closing circuit in Doha the gap is down to 2’10” and with 10 kms to go the escapees are caught
Just like in stage 2, the race offers a bunch sprint par excellence. Shoulder to shoulder Kristoff and Cav pass the line and a photo finish is needed to decide the winner is of Norwegian origin. However, as he takes 6 bonus seconds to Kristoff 10, the Briton wins his second Tour of Qatar because he earlier he left Beachline Bay Resort with a comfortable 9 seconds lead under his belt.
Cav’s first Qatar victory was in 2013.
