This year's Tour De Langkawi ended on Sunday afternoon with a fast and furious 75 kilometer city centre circuit race around the Malaysian capital, Kuala Lumpur. After almost two weeks of tough early season racing the overall standings were (barring accident) assured to the Mapei duo of Paolos Lanfranchi and Bettini.

Many of the leading teams were still without honors in the race, and both Saeco and Saturn were determined to do serious battle for a stage victory. From the start the pace was high, again largely under the impetus of the all conquering Mapei team. Breaks came and went, with most teams chancing their hand at some time in this spicy game of two wheeled poker.

With such fierce competition for the final early season honors, the likelihood of a break succeeding was slim, and as final laps passed by the finish line came in to sight, with a near full complement of riders ready to fight it out for the victory.

A long and open finishing straight meant that it was going to be a battle of tactics and strength. Coming through at the last moment was Cantina Tollo sprinter Federico Colonna, who held off a strong challenge from the previous day's runner up Andris Nauduzs (The Blonde Beast) of the Selle Italia team. For the second day running, third spot fell uncannily into the lap of New Zealander Graeme Miller.

Top Mapei finisher on the final day was Elio Aggiano, who clinched fourth, rounding off a superb race for the Italian team. Overall there were no changes; Paolo Lanfranchi flew home with the yellow and king of the mountains jerseys, while Paolo Bettini packed the green jersey into his suitcase. The overall team prize also went home with Mapei.

The only titles left unclaimed by the team were that of the best Asian rider and best Asian team, with the former again going to Hong Kong's rising star, Kam Po Wong, who is now basing his season around challenging for both track and road titles in the China Games. This means that he will miss out on a chance to ride with Selle Italia, but hopefully his growing prominence will lead to more opportunities for the following season.

Lanfranchi and Bettini meanwhile are on their way home to unpack and prepare for their own European season which kicks off in Spain in just a couple of weeks.
