Wild wins stage 4, overall at Ladies Tour of Qatar

Kirsten Wild extended her hold on the Ladies Tour of Qatar Friday, winning the final stage in Doha Corniche and the overall in the four-stage event. Wild (Giant-Shimano) landed her third stage win of the week in a bunch sprint after 85 kilometers.

Former world champion Giorgia Bronzini (Wiggle-Honda) was second and Melissa Hoskins (Orica-AIS) was third. The stage win marked Wild’s ninth career victory in the six-year-old race in Qatar.

With the stage win and time bonus, Wild extended her overall advantage to 22 seconds over teammate Amy Pieters and to 36 seconds over third-place finisher Chloe Hosking (Hitec Products).

Wild also won the Qatari event in 2009, 2010, and 2013.
