Cavendish nets stage win in Qatar

Mark Cavendish won his first race of 2009 with a sprint victory in the 141km fourth stage of the Tour of Qatar in Madinat al Shamal.

On a day marked by strong crosswinds, a high pace and littered with crashes in the last 15km, Cavendish looked to have again missed out on the decisive move.

But the Columbia rider was helped back to the front where he managed to outsprint race leader Tom Boonen.

The tour continues on Thursday, with a 147km stage from the Camel Race Track.
