Kirsten Wild wins stage two of 2013 Ladies Tour of Qatar

Kirsten Wild took a record fourth stage win in the Tour of Qatar this afternoon, north of Doha in Al Khor. It came from a wind-savaged day, which also marked Argos-Shimano's first win of 2013 for both its men's and women's teams.

She laughed off the idea that she was the Tom Boonen of the women's tour. However, like her counterpart, she has dominated the stage race since its beginning in 2009. She won the first two editions and last year placed third overall behind winner Judith Arndt.
