TOUR OF HAINAN: JAKUB MARECZKO HAS WON THE FIRST STAGE

An excellent sprint at the end of a perfect day. Jakub Mareczko restarts from where he finished just a week ago achieving a well deserved win in the opening stage of the Tour of Hainan.

The bresciano sprinter has beaten in Danzhou his rivals Dylan Page and Manuel Belletti for his 13th win of the season, 19th for the team Wilier Triestina – Selle Italia that has spent all day in front of the peloton to protect his leader.

The six riders breakaway wasn’t a trouble for the team directed by Luca Amoriello that didn’t have any problems in the terrible last km crash, avoided by Jakub Mareczko that has chosen the wheel of Marco Benfatto before starting a powerful 200 metres sprint.

Tomorrow from Danzhou to Chengmai there is another chance for #Kuba that is gonna wear the yellow jersey of general classification leader that he added to the green one of the points classification.
