Opie wins second stage at Tour of Korea

by CyclingTips

Christopher Opie (One Pro Cycling) took the win on the second stage of the Tour of Korea. The British rider beat race leader Jon Aberasturi (Team UKYO) and Neil Van der Ploeg (Avanti IsoWhey Sport) in the field sprint.

“Wow! There is nothing to say other than a huge, massive thank you to Pete, Rich, Kristian, Yanto, Karol and every single rider, staff and member of ONE Pro Cycling,” said Opie. “With out you days like today aren’t possible.”

Rain made the long 235km stage even more brutal for the peloton.

The main break consisted of 11 riders initially. Near the end of the stage two riders, Joo Kang Eun (KSPO) and Alexandr Shushemoin (Vino 4ever SKO), attacked but it was not enough to keep the peloton from the field sprint it desired.

Aberasturi retains his leads in both the overall as well as the sprint competition.
