Koudentsov evens the score

Marco Polo team report

After 4 stages in the Tour of Chong Ming Island, the score is 2-2 between Robert McLachlan of Drapac - Porsche Australia and Sergey Koudentsov (Russia) of the Chinese Marco Polo Cycling Team.

McLachlan won the first and third stage (after the DQ of South African Nolan Hoffman for irregular sprinting) whereas Koudentsov took the second and fourth stage. This last stage despite being black and blue after falling off a bridge in the third stage.

McLachlan is in yellow and also leads the points classement. Marco Polo rider Fuyu Li (China) leads in the Chinese rider classification and Capec leads Marco Polo Cycling Team and Cyclingnews-Litespeed in the team ranking.

The fifth stage is a 147 km lap around the island. Which may bring the decision in the tie between the Australian and Russian sprinter.
