Stage four cancelled due to heavy rain

The Tour de Korea fell victim to torrential rain at the outset of stage four and race officials decided to cancel the stage soon after the start.

"Due to adverse weather conditions, Tour de Korea race officials made the difficult decision to cancel today’s fourth stage from Yeosu to Geochang shortly after the race left the neutralized zone," said a statement from the race organisation. "Very heavy rainfall, surface flooding and high wind gusts impeded course visibility and caused potentially destabilising conditions in a bunch-riding situation."

The Tour de Korea will resume on Thursday with stage 5, 146.8km from Geochang to Gumi. Korea's Chan Jae Jang (Terengganu Cycling Team) holds the leader's jersey with a five-second advantage over Alex Candelario (Team Optum p/b Kelly Benefit Strategies) while David McCann (RTS Racing Team) is third overall at nine seconds.
