Jelajah Malaysia Stage 5 – Gemas – Karak

As anticipated, the fireworks did not materialise after Thursdays bloodletting when the leaderboard changed dramatically with Tonton Susanto assuming the race lead of the Jelajah Malaysia Tour. Yesterday it was a bunch sprint into Karak with Paul Griffin and David McCann showing no fatigue after the 133.7 of racing.

The big story here is the emergence of Malaysian Anuar Manan who has succeeded for the third occasion getting his wheel over the line first.

Today, the climb up Genting Highlands will certainly soften the cough of many who have aspirations of doing well. The climb will ultimately decide the outcome of the 7-day race and it is expected that Paul Griffin can at least move up the general classification listing. board.
