Brenton Jones wins Korea stage, takes over lead

by CyclingTips

Aussie Brenton Jones (Drapac) won the fourth stage of the Tour of Korea in a field sprint ahead of then race leader Jon Aberasturi (Team UKYO) and Yevgeniy Gidich (Vino 4ever SKO). The bonus for the win gives him the overall lead in a tie-break with Aberasturi.

It was a short 85.8km stage consisting of five 16.8km laps through the city of Daejeon. Only 2km into the race, five riders broke away. But with a field sprint on the mind the peloton kept the gap well under three minutes.

In the final 10km the five still had one minute, but the peloton caught the break with 2km to go.

The win also gives Jones the points competition lead.

Another sprint stage is on tap for Thursday, but Friday’s rolling stage could see changes in the overall.
