Tour of Qatar: Renshaw Wins

Very, very Australian Mark Renshaw won the Tour of Qatar over fellow Aussie Heinrich Haussler by defending the lead on the last stage of the Tour. Andrea Guardini won the sprint finish, and Renshaw, helped by his powerful HTC-Highroad squadmates, cruised all day controlling the tempo and attacks to keep Haussler, Juan Antonia Flecha and Roger Hammond in check. Renshaw is the best lead out man in the business, but got the green light to ride for himself and take the win after some bad crashes and poor form from the Manx Missile, Mark Cavendish. Special note of Theo Bos, a budding former track star who now rides with Rabobank, who finished third on the final stage.

Mark Renshaw: Great sprinter, amazing head-butter…
