2013 Le Tour de langkawi

LE TOUR DE LANGKAWI 2013 - Stage 5 - Proton - Genting 110.3km.

Feb, 25: Julian David Arredondo of Team Nippo soloed to the win and race leadership on Genting's Queen stage.


The 25-year old Colombian distanced his rivals to finish the 110.3 kilometre stage in 3 hours 11 minutes and 41 seconds, 26 seconds ahead of Orica-GreenEdge's Pieter Weening in second place and 44 in front of RTS Racing's Victor Nino.

Overnight leader Wang Meiyan (Hengxiang Cycling Team) was unable to repeat his Cameron Highland's performance and finished over five minutes down in 20th, slipping to fifth overall.

Arrendondo added 25 points in the mountains classification at the start of the stage to grab the king of the mountains red jersey from Meiyin.

However, Meiyin still remained in the lead of the Asian riders' classification, thanks to his powerful performance in winning the Cameron Highlands stage on Saturday.

Orica-GreenEdge's Travis Meyer made an early solo breakaway attempt and opened up a nine minute gap to the peloton and took the mountains hot spot in Bukit Cerakah and three intermediate sprints at Coalfields, PAya Jaras and Gombak, before being caught by the peloton when the climbing began at Genting Sempah.

His time in the spot light came to a close when the climbers finally made their big moves and Arredondo, accompanied by his teammate Fortunato Baliani led a group of 22 riders away when the race began the final part of the climb at Gohtong Jaya, 10km from the finish.

"I was just watching how the yellow jersey (Meiyin) was behaving today before making my move. I had my teammate Baliani with me and we jumped to attack with 10km to go when we saw that Meiyin had been dropped," said Arredondo. "This is my biggest win to date. I had won some races as an amateur in Italy and I only turned professional with Team Nippo last year, when I won the Japan Cup. Now I have a comfortable lead at the front and I hope my teammates will be able to control the race in the remaining stages."

Meanwhile, Meiyin, who had to ride without support from his teammates in the climb, admitted that he was disappointed in losing the yellow jersey after winning the Cameron Highlands stage. "I must admit that there are other stronger climbers here but I am satisfied with giving my best so far," said Meiyin.
