The Tour of Qatar is an annual professional road bicycle racing stage race held in Qatar. Since its foundation in 2002, the tour has been part of the UCI Asia Tour. The tour consists of a men's competition over six stages, and a women's competition over four stages – previously three stages, between 2009 and 2012 – held a week before the men's race. Because Qatar is entirely flat, the tour is almost always won by a sprint or classics specialist.
