The Trek-Marco Polo team is focusing its Tour de Langkawi on setting up wins for fast finishers Fuyu Li and Sergey Kudentsov and keeping Australian Jai Crawford or Ken Onodera high up in the general classification ahead of the final climbing stage. Team director Michael Carter hopes that the team can take advantage of a more open race, now that Genting Highlands is not included in the race. Carter sees bigger possibilities for his time now that the race cannot be decided by just one strong climber on the second to last stage.
Trek - Marco Polo for Langkawi: Fuyu Li (China), Xing Yan Dong (China), Ken Onodera (Japan), Sergey Kudentsov (Russia), Jai Crawford (Australia), Loh Sea Keong (Malaysia)
