Swiss rider Fabian Cancellara (Fassa Bortolo) won Thursday's fourth stage of the Tour of Qatar, attacking in the closing kilometres and taking victory at the precise moment of his capture by the speeding peloton. Robert Hunter conserved his overall lead while best young rider Tom Boonen continued his string of strong performances in the bunch sprints. The stage took the riders on a 168 kilometre circuit beginning and ending in Al Wakra.

"This winter I worked a lot on my sprint, and today it paid off," the excited Cancellara said after his triumph. "I've won my share of time trials, but never a road stage. This victory means a lot to me."

Cancellara won ahead of Lotto-Domo's Koos Moerenhout, who tagged along with the Swiss in a strong attack launched with 4km to go. Moerenhout didn't take a single pull, but still tried a last-ditch attack within sight of the line. Whether he was hoping teammate and sprinter McEwen would come back, or just didn't have the strength, the Dutchman had no answer for Cancellara's final acceleration as the pack swooped down on their escape. Frank Høj (Team CSC) took third on the day ahead of Boonen.

Once again it was the first intermediate sprint which prompted an increase in pace in the peloton, as 115 riders took off from Al Wakra at 12:30pm. As Ag2r-Prévoyance, Quick.Step-Davitamon and Saunier Duval wound up the sprint, Boonen took the points ahead of McEwen and race leader Hunter. As the sprinters caught their breath, Anthony Geslin (Brioches La Boulangère) decided to attack and found company in Christophe Agnolutto (Ag2r) and Sven Krauss (Gerolsteiner).

The three leaders worked together to build a lead of up to seven minutes before Boonen's Quick.Step team decided enough was enough. The trio did well to keep their break alive, and at the second intermediate sprint in Al Wakra it was Agnolutto who came through ahead of Krauss and Geslin. Under the steady pressure of Quick.Step, Hunter's Rabobank team, and Lotto-Domo, the time gaps fell as the kilometres rolled by. Eventually, with their capture a foregone conclusion, the three eased up to await the field.

By this time, the winds were once more taking their toll on the fast-moving bunch, and a small lead group had formed just as in days past. Twenty four riders found themselves ahead, including the principal players such as gold jersey Hunter and his sprint rivals Boonen, McEwen, and Jean-Patrick Nazon (Ag2r). Although the lead trio had ceased to force the pace, their advantage still remained with less than 10km to the line.

With the escapees back in the fold, it was Cancellara's turn to try an escape to foil the sprinters. The Swiss was powerful and put some daylight between himself and the leaders, with Quick.Step doing most of the work to chase them down. Nonetheless, with Moerenhout on his wheel, Cancellara managed to stay clear and took the stage just as the field reached their back wheels.
