Wiggins wraps up first race of season

Bradley Wiggins, Tour of Qatar 2010, stage 4

Bradley Wiggins (Team Sky) completed his first stage race of the season, the Tour of Qatar, satisfied with his choice of riding in the Middle East rather than doing the Etoile de Besseges as had been initially planned for his opening race.

Sky has ridden well in Qatar, with a victory in the opening team time trial. The entire squad did some strong team work in stage five, too, pulling back a dangerous late break for Edvald Boasson Hagen, who then finished third. He also took sixth on the final stage.
