February 7/14 11:12 am - Tour of Qatar: Stage 4


Posted by Editoress on 02/7/14
 

Kirsten Wild captured a fourth crown on the Ladies Tour of Qatar today. The Dutch rider from team Giant-Shimano once again showed how powerful she is on the final day of the event, claiming a third stage on the Doha Corniche. Wild outsprinted Giorgia Bronzini and Melissa Hoskins to win her 9th stage ever in Qatar.

As in the previous years, the 85 remaining riders of the Ladies Tour of Qatar took off from the Sealine Beach Resort, south of Qatar, for the final stage of the event. They would then turn and head back to Doha and a circuit on the picturesque Corniche, before crossing the finish line after 85 kilometres. Under fairly cloudy skies, the pack remained bunched all the way to the first intermediate sprint (in Al Wakra, km 38.5), claimed by Wild (GIW) ahead of Majerus (DLT) and Pieters (GIW).

At kilometre 39, two riders managed to break away from the pack: MacLean (GEW) and Burchenkova (RVL). The two escapees saw their lead go from 25sec to a maximum 1:10 by kilometre 50. As they entered the final circuit, their advantage had dropped down to 43sec and then 45sec as they crossed the line for the first time, with 5 laps to go. The front two were eventually caught at km 63. Several other riders and groups tried to take off, but the pack would react immediately.

Eventually, Chantal Blaak (SLU) managed to break away just before the fourth crossing of the line, enabling her to win the second bonus sprint with a 5sec lead over Wild and Pieters. The Dutch rider was eventually caught several kilometres later. Despite several other breakaway attempts, the pack remained bunched all the way to the final straight.

Time had then come for a “battle royal” between the fastest of the race, and again, like a year ago and like on two other occasions of this 6th edition, Kirsten Wild flew to an impressive stage win. The 3-time winner of the event claimed her 9th stage win in Qatar, beating Giorgia Bronzini (WHT) and Melissa Hoskins (GEW) to the line.

In doing so, Wild comforted her overall first spot and wins the 2014 Ladies Tour of Qatar with a 22sec lead over team mate Pieters and 36sec over Chloe Hosking (HPU). Added to her Golden Jersey, the Dutch sprinter also conquers the points classification (Silver Jersey), while Pieters finishes best young rider, winning the Pearl White Jersey.
