Tour of Qatar: Maaskant 7th in Stage 4 sprint


QtrS1_Garmin4 Here's the latest from Qatar, courtesy of the Team Garmin blog: Our man-on-the-scene, Mike Friedman, kicked off today’s fun with an attack just 15 km in to stage 4. Taking seven others with him, his escape was short lived in a brutal headwind that kept the average pace to under 35 kph.

The intense north wind knocked the weary riders around and resulted in a number of crashes. Huub Duyn and Hans Dekkers went down in one of the many pile-ups, but both finished in fine form. Young Martijn Maaskant had a front row seat for the hotly contested sprint finale and finished 7th in today’s stage with Mike just a few seconds behind.
