Dutch rider Niki Terpstra of Etixx-Quick Step claimed his second straight Tour of Qatar title at the end of the sixth and the final stage, which was won by Ireland’s Sam Bennett of the Bora Argon team at the Corncihe yesterday.
Terpstra finished safely in the peloton six seconds ahead of Poland’s Maciej Bodnar of Tinkoff-Saxo and 11 seconds over Norway’s Alexander Kristoff of team Katusha in the final stage.
