First pro win for Kerrison after Kankovsky's relegation

Australia's Jesse Kerrison of Budget Forklifts opened the record book of his pro career at the age of 19 after being declared the winner of stage 6 of the Tour of Taihu Lake at Changxing following Alois Kankovsky's relegation to 97th place due to irregular sprinting. Race leader Yuriy Metlushenko from Torku Seker Spor took it as a good news as he's back with a comfortable lead overall with an advantage of 20 seconds instead of eight, had Kankovsky remained the stage winner.
