ABSTRACT
PHILIPPE GILBERT won the Tour of Beijing yesterday by three seconds over Ireland's Dan Martin. Former world champion Gilbert held onto his overall lead after a 117-kilometre fifth and final stage from Tiananmen Square to the Bird's Nest Piazza. Sacha Modolo of Italy won the stage in a bunch sprint ahead of Greg Henderson of New Zealand, and Edvald Boasson Hagen of Norway. Gilbert finished three seconds ahead of Martin, and nine seconds over third-place Esteban Chaves of Colombia, who won the young rider classification. Gilbert said the last lap was 'stressful' because of his small lead.
