Laxey sprint ace Mark Cavendish MBE showed hes still one of the fastest sprinters in the World when he sealed victory after finishing 2nd on the final stage of the Tour of Qatar last week. The Manx Missile has another huge year ahead with goals of wearing the Yellow Jersey in the Tour De France, Olympic Gold on the track and another crack at he World Championships.
Alexander Kristoff (Katusha) won the high-speed sprint after going shoulder to shoulder with Cavendish and so took a ten-second time bonus but Cavendish gained a six-second time bonus for second place. That allowed him to win the overall classification.
