The Tour of Qatar was running its six stage tour this week and Tom Boonen took the title for his fourth time while racking up two stage wins. The tour is a good warm-up for the coming season for the sprinters as it is flat, windy and dusty. Both Boonen and Cavendish look to have some fine early season form netting two wins each. The final stage went today with Arnaud Demare taking the sprint win today. Garmin – Barracude got the only other stage win on stage 2 in the TTT.
