Like the previous stages, the Dong Nai crew actively controlled the track to protect Loic Desriac’s Yellow Shirt. Meanwhile, Dong Thap racers actively assemble machines, pull the group to the end of a group to create opportunities for Nguyen Tan Hoai and Tran Tuan Kiet to promote their sprinting knack.

However, when 500 meters away from the destination, the main “tractors” of Dong Thap were tired, and taking the opportunity, the two Ho Chi Minh City crews rose up, creating speed to bring Le Nguyet Minh back to sprint with Tan. Hoai, Tuan Kiet and Trinh Duc Tam.

Nguyet Minh and Tan Hoai surpassed each other. Near the finish line, the Ho Chi Minh City New Group trail was still a bit behind and seemed to lose. But in the last centimeters, Nguyet Minh suddenly pressed the pedal and pushed the car forward, overtaking Tan Hoai in a split second to win the first place.
