The stage remained exciting and unpredictable due to little difference between riders’ results after the 12th stage. No rabbit group was formed even after 40 kilometers, though riders had never stopped breaking out from the peleton since race started.
As the peleton kept its pace, Luke Mudgway from H&R Block Pro Cycling Team led the rabbit group of four who worked together quite well, with the gap of 1 minute 50 seconds. The gap narrowed, however, as the peleton started to chase with 30 kilometers to go, and finally caught up with the rabbit group, with 2 kilometers away from the finish.
Mareczko first crossed the finishing line in the group rush, ending up with the final result of 2h 38m 50s. Kaden Groves from Mitchelton-Bikeexchange and Andrii Kulyk from Beijing XDS-Innova Cycling Team earned second and third place respectively.
TOC II was wrapped up with great attention. In terms of the Individual Classification, the Yellow Jersey goes to Alejandro Marque from Sporting/Tavira, the Blue Jersey to Kaden Groves from Mitchelton-Bikeexchange, and the Polka-dot Jersey to Christofer Jurado Lopez from Trevigiani Phonix Hemus 1896. Jiang Zhihui, also from MBE, managed to keep his White Jersey, representing the highest honor of the riders from the Greater China Area. As to the Team Classification, Bennelong Swisswellness, an Australian team won the first place, while MBE grabbing the titles of both Best Chinese Team and Best Asian Team.
