Mareczko doubles wins at Tour of Taihu Lake

by CyclingTips

Jakub Mareczko (Willier Trestina-Southeast) took his second win in as many stages at the Tour of Taihu Lake, ahead of Emils Liepins (Rietumu-Delfin) and Nicolas Marini (Nippo-Vini Fantini). He now moves into the overall lead, along with the points and best young rider categories, while the team is leading that classification.

The Rietumu – Delfin team had the lead-out heading into the final kilometre of the rain-soaked stage. However, Mareczko had a teammate jump into the line of four and disrupt the train enough for him to move up the outside. The subsequent disorganised sprint meant he had to go from fairly far out, but he was able to hold off the challengers.

Tomorrow’s third stage will should shuffle the overall with 106kms and uphill finale at the Jiangnan TianchiLake Scenic Area.
