Kirsten Wild wins Ladies Tour of Qatar overall

Kirsten Wild wins stage two of 2013 Ladies Tour of Qatar

Kirsten Wild (Argos-Shimano) topped off an incredibly dominant display at the Ladies' Tour of Qatar with victory in the final stage to Doha - her third in a row. Unsurprisingly, she ended the four-day race as the overall winner, too.

The showpiece finish, on the Corniche that looks across the bay to the city's towering skyscrapers, saw a big bunch sprint, with Wild being given a strong leadout from her Dutch team then launching her own sprint early and holding on as Lucinda Brand (Rabobank) and Marta Tagliaferro (Cipollini-Giordana) challenged her on the line.
