Doha Corniche, Qatar - Exactly one week after Ellen Van Dijk won the women's Tour of Qatar, Mark Renshaw made it an exceptional two-out-of-two for HTC-Highroad when he scooped the overall victory in the same race for the men. Renshaw made a successful defense of his lead in the 126.5 kilometer final stage from Sealine Beach Resort to Doha Corniche on Friday, to finish ahead of Australia's Heinrich Haussler and Italian Daniele Bennati.
Qatar is the first stage race win of Renshaw's career. "The last day was really a question of staying in the pack and making sure I stayed close to Haussler and at the head of the field," Renshaw said afterwards, "It's great to come here and get the win in Qatar, it's such a hard race and to follow on the win by the women's team makes it even something special."
