Team Sky Wraps it up
Italy’s Gianni Moscon of Team Sky won the Tour of Guangxi on Sunday after Dutchman Fabio Jakobsen triumphed in the sixth and final stage in a bunch sprint.
The 24-year-old Moscon, who was thrown out of the Tour de France in July after an altercation with a fellow racer, had been the favorite for victory in China.
Moscon topped the general classification standings in the final stop of the 2018 UCI WorldTour with a time of 20 hours 39 minutes and 56 seconds. Second was Austria’s Felix Grossschartner of Bora-Hansgrohe, nine seconds behind, and a further five seconds adrift in third was Russia’s Sergei Chernetski of the Astana team.
