While the Tour of Qatar may not be on your radar this month, I would recommend following along. What makes this race stand out for me is the fact that it is relatively flat, six stages in length and usually tore up by a man with thighs bigger than tree trunks. I’m sure that brings to mind Mr. Tom Boonen, well I hope. In the history of this race he has won it more times than any other rider and for good reason, check out his legs(!). But seriously, this is a really exciting race, I think, and I’m only sorry about not knowing about it earlier than last year. So this will be my second time following along, but surely not my last.
