Kudentsov claims final stage

McCann defends leader's jersey, wins overall

Sergey Kudentsov (Polygon Sweet Nice) sprinted to victory in the Melaka Governor Cup's final stage on Sunday. The Russian bested Samuel Paul Witmitz (Le Tua Cycling Team) and Mat Amin Mohd Shahrul (ATM) in the field sprint deciding the concluding 127.4km stage.

"Today's stage not so hard as the Giant team controlled the entire race," said Kudentsov. "The weather was too hot for me. In the last 10km I got up to the front. My team helped to pull me up and we sprinted [to the finish].

"Yesterday's race was more difficult and much faster compared to today which was slower. [There was] not much attacking because two teams were controlling the race, Giant Asia and Le Tua Team."

Overnight race leader David McCann (Giant Asia Racing Team) finished 15th on the stage, one second behind Kudentsov, and claimed the overall general classification by eight seconds over Australia's Samuel Paul Witmitz (Le Tua Cycling Team).

"The stage went really well for us, there wasn't really that much for me to do except for my teammates. Alex Coutts and Prajax Mahawong were riding really strongly so that we could control all the breakaways and just get them together for a bunch finish. I knew I had enough time, I didn't have to worry about the bonuses, so we kept it together for a bunch finish and I finished somewhere around the top ten. [It was a] pretty boring day, really, but nice and again really hot...really hot.

"It's good to come back, Melaka is where I had my best finish in [Le Tour de] Langkawi. I was second once so [there's] good memories here, it's good to come back and get one better.

"The race was really well run, I can tell from the experience that I had from the other races. The traffic control was excellent and routes were nice and no danger for anybody. The finish was well organised so it's been a good race."
