Briton Mark Cavendish won the third stage of the Tour of Qatar for his new team Omega Pharma-QuickStep.

A 10-second time bonus accompanied the win and moved Cavendish to fourth overall, eight seconds behind American Brent Bookwalter, who retained the lead.

Cavendish said: "I felt really strong, so I have to thank my team. They really kept me protected, and kept me out of trouble the whole time."
