2009 Tour of Qatar Stage 2 Photos (Khalifa Stadium → Al Khor Corniche)

The peloton rolling along the unscenic, flat terrain

A split in the peloton later formed in the strong crosswinds (Looks like that camel-crossing sign is used for target practice)

The local Doha team needed some help to avoid whistlin' in the wind

With six Cervelo riders in the main break of 15, Cervelo's Roger Hammond attacked and soloed in from 3k out. (That's Tom Boonen finishing in fourth)

Roger Hammond gets the first victory for the new Cervelo Test Team

Not your typical podium and a new British rider in gold
