Tour of Langkawi
Stage 1: Kangar - Kulim - Stage Details

Tour de Lankgawi delivered on the projected bunch sprint on stage one of the Malaysian Tour. A three rider escape group dominated the early action before Theo Bos (Blanco) handily took the stage win. Although ORICA-GreenEDGE made their presence known in the closing kilometres, Aidis Kruopis was unable to unleash the full force of his sprint in the finale. 

“We wanted the sprint to go differently, but the team did a good job other than that. Tomorrow’s stage will likely be a sprint again. The boys will try again and give us every chance for a stage win.” - Sport Director Matt Wilson
