Tour of Qatar 2016 Route stage 5: Sealine Beach Resort - Doha
Friday, Februari 12, 2016 - Totalling tt 114 kilometres, the closing stage in the Tour Ronde van Qatar leads the riders from Sealine Beach Resort to the finish line Doha. In the capital of Qatar a local criterium of ten 5.4 kilometres will decide on the winner of the 2016 Tour of Qatar.
The last stage in the Tour of Qatar has valuable time bonuses in store. Two intermediate sprints bring 3, 2 and 1 seconds, while the (likely) bunch sprint to the finish line could be all decisive with time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds.
Last year Kristoff diminished the gap to leader Terpstra in the intermediate sprints to 9 seconds, so he could have been the overall winner when sprinting to day victory. He did not (Sam Bennett did) and the Dutchman took his second GC win in a row in Qatar.
With 60 kilometres done the first passage in Doha is a fact. Ten local rounds at 5.4 kilometres close the stage, with intermediate sprints at the fourth and eight passage.
No doubt it will be a sprinters party in Doha. In recent years the Corniche saw Andrea Guardini, Arnaud Démare (twice), Mark Cavendish and Sam Bennett blasting to victory.
