Stages[edit]

Prologue[edit]

6 February 2011 - Cultural Village, 2.5 km (1.6 mi) (ITT)

Traditionally time trials are ridden on bicycles made specifically for these events. However, being as this was the only time trial in the tour - and a short one - the teams were not allowed to bring time trial bikes and helmets. Lars Boom won the short 2.5 km time trial, edging world champion Fabian Cancellara by 4 seconds.

Classification leadership[edit]

In the 2011 Tour of Qatar, three different jerseys are awarded. For the general classification, calculated by adding each cyclist's finishing times on each stage, and allowing time bonuses for the first three finishers on each stage and in intermediate sprints, the leader receives a golden jersey. This classification is considered the most important of the Tour of Qatar, and the winner is considered the winner of the Tour.

Additionally, there is a points classification, which awards a silver jersey. In the points classification, cyclists get points for finishing in the top three in an intermediate sprint or the top twenty of a stage. The first in an intermediate sprint gets 3 points, second 2, and third a single point. The stage win affords 30 points, second is worth 27 points, 25 for third, 23 for fourth, 21 for fifth, 19 for sixth, 17 for seventh, 15 for eighth, 13 for ninth, 11 for tenth, and one point less per place down the line, to a single point for twentieth.

There is also a youth classification, which awards a blue jersey. This classification is calculated the same as the general classification, but only riders born on or after January 1, 1986 are eligible.

The race also awards a teams classification, which is not represented by a jersey. The teams classification is calculated by adding the times of each team's best three riders per stage per day.
