Could the weekend’s amazing finish to the Tour De Taiwan be one of the closest Tour finishes ever.

With Merida sprinter Jezowski Krsysztof jumping from the peloton to catch 6 of the 7 man breakaway group on the finish line of the final stage to get the 6 seconds time bonus for 2nd in the stage, and move him to the exact same finish time as Australian Champion and Yellow jersey wearer Peter McDonald (Drapac Porsche) after more than 800kms of racing up the west coast of Taiwan.

Krsysztof then taking the yellow jersey on a count back of each stages finishing positions.
