Matej Mohoric wins the inaugural Hong Kong Challenge

by Matt de Neef

Former U23 world champion Matej Mohoric (UAE Team Emirates) has soloed to victory in the Sun Hung Kai Properties Hong Kong Challenge, a new addition to the UCI Asia Tour for 2017.

Mohoric got away late in the 20-lap circuit race with only Australia’s Robbie Hucker (IsoWhey Sports-SwissWellness) for company. Mohoric was then able to leave the Australian behind as he soloed to his second victory of the season (after stage 7 of the Vuelta).

Hucker was second at seven seconds while Yukiya Arashiro (Japan) and Mitch Docker (Orica-Scott) were third and fourth at 1:14.
