Today a longer stage to finish this second part of the HTV Cup. With a non-scoring climb and ups-and-downs until descending to the sea level, where we would end in Nha Trang.
From the start, like everyday: attempts to break away until a big group manages to escape and the leader's team allows it. Around the km 90 the Bikelife french rider attacks and the team leader and us let him do. He joins the upfront group and they get 3 minute advantage. Seeing that the team leader and Bikelife had a kind of a deal, my team takes control of the peloton and we bring down the breakaway. At the en of the stage, we allow a breakaway that would get the victory. Everything now would be decided on the team trials after tomorrow's break.
