Kazakhstan’s Yevgeniy Fedorov registered a sensational opening day victory for the Vino-Astana Motors team with a solo finish to bag stage 1 of the Petronas Le Tour de Langkawi 2020 in Kuching today.

Fedorov, 19, emerged victorious in a batlle of two champion time trialists with Thailand Continental Cycling Team’s Thurakit Boonratanathanakorn as the pair forged an early breakaway partnership that lasted through the 85.6km stage around Kuching’s city centre.

The Petronas Le Tour de Langkawi 2020 moves to Kuala Terengganu for Stage 2 tomorrow, which will cover 175.5km from Kuala Terengganu to Kerteh, a flat stage with three intermediate sprints in Chendering (KM21.8), Rantau Abang (KM73) and Bandar Al Muktafi Billah Shah (KM135.8) with a bunch sprint expected at the finish line in Bandar Baru Kerteh. – February 7, 2020.
