Le Tour de Langkawi. Gleb Syritsa is second in rainy Stage 6
Stage 6 of Le Tour de Langkawi, impacted a lot by a heavy rain, ended with another massive sprint from the peloton where Astana Qazaqstan Team’s trainee Gleb Syritsa once again showed his potential, taking a second podium place. This is third notable result for Syritsa in the Malaysian race after a win in Stage 1 and a second place in Stage 2.
“Honestly, I like the rain and I can say that today it was my weather, I felt quite comfortable today. But, of course, it was a bit nervous and dangerous. Once again my teammates did a great job for me and in the final I was able to find a good position for the sprint. Perhaps I got a bit boxed in on the last straight, but at the same time, maybe, I did a small mistake, starting my sprint too late. However, every race and every sprint are a lesson for me, a possibility to gain some new experience which will help me to become stronger”, – said Gleb Syritsa.
The General Classification of Le Tour de Langkawi did not change after Stage 6. The Colombian Ivan Ramiro Sosa still leads the race, while Andrey Zeits is currently 9th, +2.33 behind the leader. Gleb Syritsa is second in sprinter classification, just 1 point behind today’s stage winner Erlend Blikra.
