Asia Tour winner dreaming of Tour de France

Hossein Alizadeh was ecstatic on receiving the news he had been crowned the overall winner of the UCI Asia Tour. He gained enough of an advantage through his stage win and overall victory at the 2.HC Tour of Qinghai Lake to win the title. Stefan Schumacher made a strong attempt at the tours in China to overthrow the young Iranian's lead with the two separated by just two points at the completion of the final race counted for the 2012 season. Alizadeh is hoping his Tour title will see him riding for a bigger European team next year where he can show-off his climbing abilities.
