Cav set to aid team-mate's Qatar bid

It's the final stage of the Tour of Qatar today (Friday), and it's expected Mark Cavendish will once again be called upon to help his team-mate Mark Renshaw.

The Australian is going for overall victory at the tour and currently leads the general classification by six seconds, after winning yesterday's penultimate stage.

The time bonuses Renshaw picked up on the stage allowed him to overhaul fellow Aussie Heinrich Haussler at the top of the standings.

After spending much of yesterday's stage helping Renshaw, Cavendish dropped off later on and finished 59th, four minutes and 44 seconds behind his HTC Highroad team-mate.

Today's final stage is a shorter one, starting in the Sealine Beach Resort and covering a 126.5km route north towards the capital, finishing at Doha Corniche.
