Metlushenko wins two stages in a row at Tour of Taihu Lake

Ukraine's Yuriy Metlushenko of Torku Seker Spor made it two in a row as he won stage 2, which consisted in eight laps around the dead flat Shuangshanandao Island on the Yangtze river. In a tight sprint finish, he beat Czech track specialist Alois Kankovsky, who is no stranger to Chinese races as he recently won the Tour of China II, and Frenchman Yannick Martinez of La Pomme Marseille.
