Renshaw claims overall win in Tour of Qatar

Mark Renshaw wins 2011 Tour of Qatar overall, Haussler second, Bennati third

Mark Renshaw again showed HTC-Highroad's depth of sprinting talent by winning the 2011 Tour of Qatar in addition to yesterday's stage win.

Renshaw, more usually seen leading out British team-mate Mark Cavendish, kept close rival Heinrich Haussler (Garmin-Cervelo) out of the picture in the final day's sprint finish to take the gold jersey. Renshaw's win comes on the back of team-mate Matt Goss's stage success at the Tour Down Under in January.

Nigel Wynn
Former Associate Editor

Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on, he worked almost single-handedly on the Cycling Weekly website in its early days. His passion for cycling, his writing and his creativity, as well as his hard work and dedication, were the original driving force behind the website’s success. Without him, would certainly not exist on the size and scale that it enjoys today. Nigel sadly passed away, following a brave battle with a cancer-related illness, in 2018. He was a highly valued colleague, and more importantly, an exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
