Tour de Langkawi
Stage 8: Rembau to Kuala Lumpur - Stage Details

A tough eight days of racing at Le Tour de Langkawi came to a close for Mitchelton-BikeExchange in Malaysia today with 19-year-old Australian Harry Sweeny securing tenth on the general classification.

After making a key move and finishing fourth on stage three Sweeny moved up to third on GC, but unfortunately lost time on the final two stages when the breakaway made it all the way to the line on stage seven and a late mechanical saw Sweeny chasing the peloton on stage eight.

Artem Ovechkin (Terngganu-Cycling-Team) secured the race victory with the final stage won by Italian sprinter Andrea Guradini (Bardiani-CSF).

British sprinter Jacob Hennessy was involved in a crash early in the race and recovered for a top ten finish on stage four whilst Liu Jiankun was the best placed Chinese rider overall in 48th place.
