TOUR OF HAINAN: LUCA PACIONI IN THE BREAKAWAY OF THE 2ND STAGE

It hasn’t been a great day at the Tour of Hainan for the team Wilier Triestina – Selle Italia that, due to the non perfect condition of Jakub Mareczko, has lost the Yellow Jersey as the bresciano sprinter was dropped 1500 metres from the finish in Chengmai.

Today’s stage was the opposite compared to the one of yesterday with the first 45 kms very fast till a twelve riders breakaway, including our Luca Pacioni, was taking some gap.

The romagnolo rider, second on the 4th cat. climb of the day, wasn’t able to follow the counterattack of Simon Pellaud and Fausto Masnada that was caught with only 300 metres to the finish.

Lucas Carstensen was the fastest rider today with Dylan Page once again in second place but happy with the new yellow jersey. Our top finisher was Simone Velasco
