Lizzie Armitstead Triumphs at the Ladies Tour of Qatar
The 7th edition of the Ladies Tour of Qatar took place over a four-day period. Dutch rider Kirsten Wild, who won four of the previous six editions of the race, did not participate in the event this year, which saw Lizzie Armitstead become the first British rider to win the Ladies Tour of Qatar. After her victory at the Commonwealth Games and her UCI World Cup crown last year, the Yorkshire rider added another prestigious title to her career. The Boels Dolmans leader triumphed in style as she claimed the final stage of the event, ahead of Australia's Chloe Hosking and Netherland's Ellen Van Dijk.
