After two sprint friendly stages, won by Mark Cavendish and Alexander Kristoff, stage three of the Tour of Qatar sees the peloton take on a 11km time trial, starting and finishing in Lusail. 

Barry Markus (Roompot - Oranje Peloton) was set to start the time trial but has abandoned the race following a late crash on stage 2 that saw him break his collarbone in three places. Karl Menzies will be the first rider off at 1:42pm local time with one-minute intervals bewteen starters.

Overall race leader Cavendish will be the last rider to start at 4:03pm, defending a five second lead over Kristoff.

Etixx-Quick Step's Niki Terpstra won the time trial last year with Michael Hepburn (Orica-GreenEdge) claiming victory in 2014. Both riders are absent from the race this year, opening the door for a new winner against the clock.
