What a ride – Tour of Qatar Stage 3
I found this from a tweet by @taylorphinney and it really brought back some great memories of racing. The season is approaching, and my training is at absolute zero so I have a huge respect for the riding happening here. Looking forward to hitting the streets soon once I unpack my bike in March.
The video is fairly long for those who aren’t huge cycling fans, but the final minute will tell you the incredible speed and craziness that we go through in a sprint finish.
Average speed for the stage was near to 45 km/h with a finish that probably pushed up around 70 km/h. Great finish by Tom Boonen and hopefully everyone else gets to the start line tomorrow.
