Opening / Media Conference

29 January - Race HQ - Doha, Qatar

 

Media Conference

The fifth Ladies Tour of Qatar was launched on 28th January, at a media conference held in the race headquarters in the Ritz Carlton hotel, Doha. Key sponsors, Exxon Mobil and Mitsubishi Motors, were in attendance along with joint organisers, Qatar Cycling Federation and Amaury Sports Organisation (ASO).

The 2013 edition has been extended compared to previous years; there will be four stages compared to three in all other editions. The President of the Qatar Cycling Federation, Sheikh Khalid Bin Ali Al Thani, welcomed the return of the race. In response and on behalf of ASO, Eddy Merckx, highlighted the growth of the race - both the number of stages and the number of prospective participants. During planning for the first edition in 2009, ASO just managed to get 15 teams involved with the event. During planning for 2013, 30 teams expressed an interest in the 15 places.

For the sponsors, Exxon Mobil's Bart Cahir and Mitsubishi Motors' Ihab El Feky were both complimentary about the organisation and the level of competition and also the associated community and global involvement the event enables them to engage.
