Tour of Chongming Island - Race Overview

After taking third on the opening stage of the Tour of Chongming Island Australian sprinter Sarah Roy showed her form again today, claiming a hard fought fourth place on the final stage in China.

ORICA-SCOTT came into the race and knew what to expect from the rightly proclaimed ‘Sprinters Paradise’ and collectively performed well over the three days of competition.

The final stage and the overall was won by Jolien D’Hoore (Wiggle-High5) after yet another bunch sprint sealed the day, Roy jumped the wheel of a fast moving Alex Manly and finished in fourth place on the stage and on the general classification.

“I am changing my opinion of this race,” said Sport director Martin Barras. “Over the last six or seven years the economic growth has really seen the region and infrastructure develop in a positive way. The organisation and security within the race is vastly improved and it is great to see and be a part of.”
