TOUR OF HAINAN: JACOPO MOSCA RETAINS THE YELLOW JERSEY

A strong defense from the team Wilier Triestina – Selle Italia that for the first time in eight stages doesn’t go on the podium at the Tour of Hainan but today’s result was excellent as the team managed to defend the yellow jersey of Jacopo Mosca.

Very fast pace at the start of a rainy day and peloton that split under the attacks of the riders who wanted to try to shake up the things in the general classification. The rhythm was too much for Jakub Mareczko that stayed in the second part of the bunch accompanied by Eugert Zhupa and Giuseppe Fonzi.

Amazing job in front of the peloton from Ilia Koshevoy, Alex Turrin and our stagiaire Luca Raggio that were working hard in chase of the breakaway and saving Jacopo Mosca from the attempts of his rivals bringing a very selected bunch to the final sprint won by Luca Zanotti with the yellow jersey in 6th place.

Tomorrow last race of this season, Jakub Mareczko will aim the victory also for keeping the green jersey while Jacopo Mosca is few steps away from a dream, winning his first stage races as a professional.
