Final KM: Ladies Tour of Qatar, Stage 1

Is it a Final KM or is it a Quick Hit? Well, a bit of both. Stage 1 of the Ladies Tour of Qatar and the Queen of the Desert came to win!

Stage 1: Katara Cultural Village / Qatar University, 97km

Kirsten Wild (Hitec Products) sprinted her way to victory in stage 1 of the 8th edition of the Ladies Tour of Qatar. This was her 10th stage win at Qatar, earning her the nickname Queen of the Desert. Annalisa Cucinotta (Ale Cipollini) came in second and Lizzie Williams (Orica-AIS) took third. Arianna Fidanza (Italy) wears the best young rider jersey.

I couldn’t find any videos of the final KM but I did find an interview!
