TOUR OF HAINAN: MARECZKO TAKES OUT STAGE 5 IN A THRILLING FINALE

And we made it 4! Jakub Mareczko and the team Wilier Triestina – Selle Italia celebrate a sensational poker at the Tour of Hainan at the end of a very exciting stage with an emotional finale.

It looked like today’s breakaway had more than a chance when with 5 kms to go the three leaders were holding a 30″ advantage on the pack, always led by our tireless men.

But in cycling nothing is sure till the finish line and so with 350 metres to go, after an impressive job by Eugert Zhupa, the peloton reached the leaders and so #Kuba could show all his power achieving his 4th win in a row.

Tomorrow new chance for the sprinters on the eve of the 7th stage that should shake up the things in the general classification
