Final KM: Tour of Qatar St3!

A time trial on road bikes [oh those track hands on the bars #swoon], a tricky course full of sharp bends and Eddie Bossing it Hagen flying free. What more do you want from a stage?

Tour of Qatar, Stage 3, Lusail to Lusail, ITT, 11km

Edvald Boasson Hagen (Dimension Data) powered around the technical course catching not one but TWO minute men in the process. His time of 13:26 minutes was a whopping 25 seconds faster than LottoNL-Jumbo’s TT specialist Jos van Emden, with Manual Quinziato (BMC) a further 4 seconds back.  The leader’s jersey stays with Dimension Data but transfers to Edvald’s shoulders. A gutsy ride by former leader Mark Cavendish keeps him on the GC podium and in the silver points jersey. Søren Kragh Andersen (Giant-Alpecin) recaptured the pearl young riders jersey #VIKING.

It’s brilliant to see EBH riding with panache again, so brilliant in fact that you get a little extra Eddie goodness.
