The race from Cao Bang to Lang Son this morning 7/4 is only 130 kilometers long. But because this is a road with many steep passes plus rain, the Organizing Committee has decided to only calculate the races, but not the achievements at this stage in the final results. Strong racing teams such as Ho Chi Minh City, An Giang, therefore, do not organize attacks, but mainly go crowded enough to maintain the strength of the pillars.

In contrast, the remaining teams such as Vietnam youth recruitment, Army, Dong Thap, Dong Nai all try to win the prize with the prize money. They launched good cards on the pass like Loic Desriac (Dong Nai) and Nguyen Tan Hoai (Dong Thap) to go ahead to win the prize. With these two strong riders together, the first group moved at high speed, sometimes nearly 10 minutes behind the rear group.

When it was about 10 kilometers from the destination, Desriac and Tan Hoai actively split the top to form a pair of racing but pulled each other to the finish. Tan Hoai is currently the second best sprinter in Vietnam, while Desriac is strong in mountain climbing and individual timing. Realizing that the sprint was not as good as his opponent, the former French U23 bicycle player suddenly slowed down to a distance of nearly 1 kilometer and followed Tan Hoai. Only when it was about 200 meters away did the French soldiers suddenly press the sprint pedal. Tan Hoai was surprised and slowed a beat. Therefore, Loic Desriac won over to win the first leg with a reward of 20 million VND.

“This is a difficult race, my teammates and I have studied very carefully to be able to finish the race,” Desriac said after stepping down from the podium. “Tan Hoai is a strong opponent and has a better sprint, so I choose the timing to attack, and thereby beat him by a narrow margin”.

With this race not included in the summary table, after two races, driver Le Nguyet Minh of New Group Ho Chi Minh City still haggles with Yellow Shirts and Blue Shirts. Meanwhile, the White Shirt for young racers belongs to Thai Ngoc Hai (Vinh Long).

Team An Giang led the team, ranked second, Dong Thap and Ho Chi Minh City ranked third.

Tomorrow, April 8, the group races around the city of Lang Son, 40 kilometers long.
