Tour of Langkawi
Stage 8: Kuala Terengganu - Tanah Merah - Stage Details

After several stages in which they played the main aggressors, ORICA-GreenEDGE had a quiet day of racing in Malaysia. Having lost Aidis Kruopis to a crash in the opening kilometres, the team raced for Allan Davis in the sprint. A technical error in the final run-in towards the line cost Davis an opportunity to challenge for the stage win. 

“We swapped Aidis for Allan. We had been talking about changing it up even before Aidis crashed, and this made it clear that it’s what we needed to do. We put Allan in a good position in the sprint. It didn’t work out today.” - Sport Director Matt Wilson
