In another sprint against the wind, a different stage winner emerged with Australia’s Brenton Jones of Drapac taking the final win in Wanning Xinglong but the overall victory remained in the camp of Lampre-Merida as Sacha Modolo retained the yellow jersey to claim his first ever stage race triumph.

 

 

At 119km, the final stage was relatively short. There were two intermediate sprints on the course and since the gaps in general classification were very slim, many riders wanted to claim some extra seconds. Hence, the peloton was not letting anyone go clear and after 60 kilometers of racing it was still all together. The riders covered 46km in the first hour.

 

The first sprint was taken by Evaldasa Siskevicius (Team Marseille 13 KTM). At the second, it was Łukasz Owsian (CCC Sprandi) who grabbed 3 seconds. He attacked a few kilometers before the sprint with Francesco Gavazzi (Southeast) and another rider and managed to maintain his advantage until the prime.

 

Adrian Honkisz (CCC Sprandi) took part in the next move. He broke clear alongside two other Asian riders, but after establishing a 30-second lead, they were all reeled back in with 33 kilometers remaining.

 

The finale was very fast and nobody was able to create a gap. In the end it got a little big chaotic after a crash which involved around 25 riders, split the field with 3.6km to go. The surviving riders decided the stage in a bunch sprint. Brenton Jones (Drapac) conquered the victory, outsprinting Fabio Silvestre (Trek Factory) and Benjamin Giraud (Team Marseille 13 KTM).

 

Sacha Modolo (Lampre-Merida) held on to his overall lead and took the win. He was joined on the podium by Andrey Zeits (Astana) and Julien El Fares (Team Marseille 13 KTM).

 

Many riders from this week's race will continue racing at the Tour of Taihu Lake which starts on Saturday.
