[2.2] Tour of Borneo 2013; 18/8-22/8
« on: August 18, 2013, 09:36 »
To my astonishment, we don't have a race thread for the greatest race of Asia yet. Here it is then.
Find the 2012 thread here - it's what brought Jono around.
And now, without further ado, let's look at the 2013 race.


The stages

Unlike last year, the race keeps to the western part of Sabah, with all stages being in the area around state capital Kota Kinabalu. We still get the mountaintop finish at Kundasang, though.

Stage 1: Kota Kinabalu - Tuaran, 108.7 km


Stage 2: Tanjung Aru - Papar, 189.2 km


Stage 3: Penampang - Kota Kinabalu, 132.6 km


Stage 4: Kota Kinabalu - Kundasang, 147.1 km


Stage 5: Kundasang - Kota Kinabalu, 112.4 km

    Stage 1 ended in a bunch sprint after #tabriz kept things together. They lost out on the stage win, though, with Asgharzadeh only finishing in 6th place.
    Team Corbusier's Dutch-heritage Aussie Paul van der Ploeg took the win ahead of #terengganu Mohammad Saufi Mat Senan and #synergy Oleksandr Surutkovych:

    Is the Tour of Borneo an elite race?

    If not, Isn't Cookson responsible for it as Race Commissioner at the UCI?

    He ought to be. Although he'll probably say that this commission is responsible for anti-doping matters.
