José Serpa (Androni-Venezuela) took the win on stage 5 of Le Tour de Langkawi, winning ahead of Darren Lapthrone (Drapac).

After the first hour of racing, the peloton covered 47.8km – Adam Phelan (Drapac), 2nd overall, dropped out due to knee pain.  80km into the race, a break finally formed containing Alessandro De Marchi (Androni-Venezuela), Yohann Gene (Europcar), Rhy Pollock (Drapac) and James Williamson (New Zealand).  They built up a 4 minute lead approaching the Bukit Tangga climb.  Williamson attacked solo on the climb.  The break had been absorbed by the time the next categorized climb of the day came up, the Genting Perez.  Matteo Rabottini (Farnese-Selle Italia) and José Rujano (Androni-Venezuela) leaped off the front of the peloton, while GC leader, Dave Zabriskie (Garmin-Barracuda), lost ground.

Rabottini lead on the final climb, along with Serpa, Lapthorne, Ghader Mizbani (Tabriz Petrochemical), Alexsandr Dyachenko (Astana Pro Team), Mohammad Saufi Mat Senan (Terengganu Cycling Team), Muhamad Othman (Champion System) and Victor Nino Corridor (Azad University).  Lapthorne broke off the front of the break with 5km left to race, Serpa bridged up to him.  The duo built up a lead of 24 seconds, holding their stint until the end.

Looks like 11 speed Dura-Ace is making its rounds in the pro peloton.  Staying true to their forged aluminum ways, I see.

I’ve just found it really difficult to come from the road and replicate that form on the track. I had great form on the road but I’ve not been able to transfer it to the track. I’ve just struggled with the cadence. I don’t know why.

Pro.

The fact that an image like this even exists is proof that pros will be pros.  If you’re going to send a message, do it big.  And do it with a win.

Andrea Guardini (Farnese Vini-Selle Italia) took yet another sprint victory at Le tour de Langkawi, making for a total of 3 victories.  Jacobe Keough (UnitedHealthcare) took 2nd place, and Harrif Salleh (Terengganu Cycling Team) took 3rd.

Earlier in the day, Rhys Pollock (Drapac) broke off the front of the peloton.  Kevin Reza (Europcar), Louis Crosby (New Zealand) and Shinichi Fukushima (Terengganu) were able to bridge up to Pollock to form the break of the day.  They had 2:30 after 13km, and increased their gap to 6 minutes at 64km.  With 33km left to race, their gap was still at 5 minutes.  Astana and Farnese Vini – Selle Italia began reeling the break closer – Crosby was the last breakaway rider to be caught, 75m from the line.  Dave Zabriskie (Garmin-Barracuda) finished in the bunch and retains his GC lead.  Teammates Adam Phelan (Drapac) and Darren Lapthorne are 2nd and 3rd, a minute down from Zabriskie.

Tuesday’s run.

It appears as if our schedules are becoming more stable, and surprisingly, I was able to get out of the office a tad before 5pm.  Time for an easy run.  I was expecting people to be leaving work at right around the same time, but oddly enough, the sidewalks were pretty clear.  There were a handful of red lights though – it could’ve been worse, I guess.

I’m glad to finally see the dim light at the end of the tunnel with the project we’ve been working on in the office.  Hopefully we’ll be free and clear, soon enough.  I’m scheduled to be in at work a bit earlier to meet a 2pm deadline, so hopefully that goes well.  Fingers crossed.
