TOUR OF TAIHU LAKE: THE FINAL TRIUMPH OF JAKUB MARECZKO

Final apotheosis for Jakub Mareczko that manages to defend himself from the several attacks in the 7th and last stage of the Tour of Taihu Lake claiming his 5th win and, as in 2015, the final classification in this chinese race.

The Jurong Chishanhu – Maoshan was the hardest stage of the week but #Kuba, leader of a solid hard working team, was able to stay in the selected 30 units bunch beating everybody in the final sprint after that at the beginning of the stage Matteo Busato and Jacopo Mosca joined a dangerous breakaway with the duty of stopping all the attacks.

Mareczko reaches 34th wins in career, a very high number if we consider he’s only 23 years old, with the team Wilier Triestina – Selle Italia that has claimed 11 wins in this season that is gonna end in China at the Tour of Hainan.
