Five out of six isn't bad; the Belgian squad Quick-Step closed out the Tour of Qatar just how they opened it, winning. Adding to stage 1 (team time trial) and stages 2, 3 and 4, Tom Boonen took the closing stage in a sprint finish, while teammate Wilfried Cretskens, thanks to yesterday's escape, took the final overall classification.

"A pretty good week is the least we can say concerning the performance of the Quick-step team," noted Boonen after the Tour ended in Doha. "We almost managed a full house here, winning almost all there was to win.

"Toady, I again show that I am the best when it comes to sprints. I am also really happy for my team mate Wilfried Creskens, winner of the event. You know, he rides around 15,000 to 20,000 kilometres a year to prepare for my sprints so it's a great reward for him to win a race like this one. He was also there to help me become World Champion in Madrid in 2005."

How it unfolded

It was a slower start to today's 134 kilometre stage, from Sealine Beach Resort to Doha Corniche. Once in the Doha Corniche circuit, the peloton would cover seven laps to conclude the stage and the 6th Tour of Qatar.

There were strong winds that would only allow the riders to cover 37.1 km in the first hour of racing. During this time escape attempts were launched and reeled in, the biggest being a group of 12, including Leon Van Bon (Rabobank). It reached a maximum of 20" before being pulled back at km 11.

Four kilometres later the day's major move went free. Glenn Bak (Murphy-Gunn/Newlyn/M.Donnely) took off solo before being joined by Kenny De Haes (Chocolade Jacques9 and Emilien-Benoît Berges (Agritubel). The trio made pace and built an advantage of 1'40 by km 21, 4'20 by 28 and a maximum of 7'45" at the first intermediate sprint (km 79). De Haes took the line honours over Berges and Bak, as the three kept pushing on towards Doha Corniche.

The first of the seven closing circuits started but the trio did not look like they were going to hold on. The gap was being shattered under the influence of the sprinters' teams; at km 70 the gap was down to 5'35", and a further minute, to 4'35", at the second intermediate sprint (km 79), where Belgian De Haes again took top points.

Milram, Saunier Duval-Prodir and Liquigas were joined by Quick-Step on the front of the chasing peloton which was making for an end to the day's move. The gap was right at 3' when they hit the finishing line to complete the fourth of seven laps. By km 103 the gap was touching the minute mark, and the trio was completely whipped out by kilometre 116. The sprint was ready to go.

Like in three stages before in this tour, Tom Boonen was able to overpower his rivals. Graeme Brown (Rabobank) showed his strength but could only manage third and Alessandro Petacchi (Milram), like on stages 2 and 3, had to settle for best of the rest behind the Belgian.

Quick-Step also celebrated Belgian Cretskens taking the overall win, doubling on last year's win with Tom Boonen. It was a successful trip for the Belgium-based team, five stage wins and the overall; not to mention Boonen showing his domination over Ale-Jet.
