Breyne breaks through in Tour of Taihu

Like in the previous days, the winner of stage 8 of the Tour of Taihu Lake was classified with the same time as the rest of the peloton, but Belgium's Jonathan Breyne of Pro Continental team Crelan-Euphony didn't win a bunch sprint. By just a few centimeters, he stayed away from the bunch sprint and won ahead of Boris Shpilevskiy of RTS-Santic. Torku's Ahmet Örken, in third, greatly helped his road captain Yuriy Metlushenko to keep his fourteen seconds lead over Alois Kankovsky with only one stage remaining.
