LE TOUR DE LANGKAWI 2013 - Go!

Bos stamps his authority with back to back wins at the Tour de Langkawi


Theo Bos has dominated start of the 2013 Tour de Langkawi with back to back wins in the first two stages. On stage one, from Kangar to Kulim, Bos outsprinted Europcar's Bryan Coquard for the win with Astana's Andrea Guardini in third. Bos repeated the feat on stage 2 from Serdang to Kuala Kangsar. This time Guardini pushed himself to secure second place with Team Orica-GreenEdge's Aidis Kruopis in third. The wins gave Bos both the leader's yellow jersey as well as the blue points jersey.

With the next day's mountain stage lilely to bring his reign in yellow to a close Bos have to revel in his success, "I am happy to have continued with this winning rhythm, although today was a little bit more difficult because I had to start my sprint quite early. My teammate Greame Brown had opened it up too early.

"At first I saw the Garmin rider (Steele Von Hoff) behind me, then suddenly Guardini was there. But I also saw that he had some problems with his pedal, so I was a bit lucky today," said Bos, 30, who managed seven victories the whole of last year, but has already got three in his first two races this year after also winning Stage 2 in the Tour of the Algarve last week."
