Sunday Film: Qatar Stage 1 - Highlights And Lowlights

If you didn't get a chance to catch the race earlier, here are highlights of the final 5km of today's Tour of Qatar Stage 1 won by surprise candidate Brent Bookwalter (BMC) as he made his jump with two others close to the finish in a block headwind managing to keep the sprinters and their trains at bay. This footage serves two purposes though. If you read my post last week about Qatar then you will remember I made a comment about a distinct lack of fans and atmosphere at the roadside. Today's stage was a perfect example, you can practically count those watching the race on one hand...
