6 ЭТАП : ТУР ХАЙНАНЯ :: SANYA-DONGFANG – 182KM

“Антомарки и Овсиан – француз и поляк, это наши основные соперники на воскресном этапе в горах – Дьяченко, Камышев и я имеем отличную поддержку от команды здесь и мы попробуем разыграть несколько тактических вариантов на финише -“

Андрей Зейц на финише шестого этапа Тура Хайнаня -

Зейц и все остальные его товарищи по команде прибыли на финиш в одно время с победителем этапа Николо Бонифацио из Италии, перехватившим майку лидера общего зачете накануне королевского завтрашнего этапа -

Отрыв из пяти гонщиков возглавил гонку вдоль южного побережья острова Хайнань в субботу – после погони пелотон сумел добрать беглецов, на финиш гонщики прибыли одной группой -

Воскресный этап длиной 199 километров включает в себя три категорийные вершины и скоростной даунхилл длиной 11 километров вплоть до финиша в Wuzishan -

Тур Хайнаня 2014 в этом году проложен по часовой стрелке вокруг острова, стартовав в этом году на севере в Haikou, в отличие от прошлых лет, когда он стартовал и финишировал в курортном городе Sanya -

Финиш этапа в понедельник пройдет в Chengmai и его нельзя назвать равнинным, но Зейц и его товарищи по команде уверены, что судьба общего зачета гонки решится в воскресенье в горах -

ST6 : Tour of Hainan :: Sanya-Dongfang – 182km

“Antomarchi and Owsian – French and Polish riders who will be our main competitors to watch on Sunday in the mountains – Dyachenko and Kamyshev and I have the strongest team here and we will work out some tactics at the finish -“

Andrey Zeits after stage six at the Tour of Hainan -

Zeits and the rest of his teammates all finished together with stagewinner Nicolo Bonifazio of Italy, who moves into the leader’s jersey in General Classification ahead of tomorrow’s Queen Stage to Wuzishan -

A 5-man breakaway escaped on the mainly flat stage along Hainan’s southern coast on Saturday – after a chase the peloton caught the riders and finished all together under cloudy but dry skies after leaving the luxurious beach resort city of Sanya -

Sunday’s seventh stage is 199km long and features three first-category climbs before a fast 11-km descent to the finish in Wuzishan -

The 2014 Tour of Hainan races clockwise around the island, and this year began in the northern capital city Haikou, different than in years past with the grand depart and final stages in Sanya -

Monday’s finish in Chengmai is not flat, but Zeits and teammates agree that the greatest opportunity to win the overall classification comes Sunday in the mountains -

Зейц прибыл на финиш в первой группе из 24 гонщиков вместе со своими товарищами по команде Александром Дьяченко, Русланом Тлеубаевым и Арманом Камышевым – обогнав большую часть пелотона более, чем на две минуты -

Дождь, возможно, продолжится в ходе всей недели, но Зейц, отстающий сейчас от лидера общего зачета итальянца Андреа Палини на 26 секунд, сказал, что в ходе субботнего этапа с двумя категорийными вершинами должен вывести Астану на лидирующие позиции -

Zeits finished in the lead group of 24 riders with teammates Aleksandr Dyachenko, Ruslan Tleubayev and Arman Kamyshev – in front of the rest of the peloton by more than two minutes -

Rain should continue through the weekend, but Zeits, now 26 seconds behind overall leader Andrea Palini of Italy, said Sunday’s finish in Wuzishan, with two first-category climbs, could see Astana Pro Team move into the lead -

Tleubayev finished third on Friday, and is now seventh overall, with Kamyshev in fifth, 16 seconds back -

Dmitriy Gruzdev after stage four at the Tour of Hainan -

French rider Julien Antomarchi won the rolling stage southward along the seacoast – a tailwind helped the breakaway of just three riders, and when rain began and the wind shifted, the peloton was unable to catch Antomarchi when he soloed to victory -

Ruslan Tleubayev finished fourth, two seconds behind Antomarchi, who now leads the overall classification by four seconds – Arman Kamyshev sits in seventh overall, 10 seconds down -

Sunday’s seventh stage is a full mountain finish and should decide the General Classification, with Astana Pro Team ready to react -

3 КЕЗЕҢ : ХАЙНАН ТУРЫ:: HAIKOU-YUELIANGWAN – 135KM

“Біз барлығымыз Русланға жұмыс жасадық. Бірақ топтық спринт кезінде қарбаластың болатыны заңдылық. Осындай бір сәтте мен шабуылдауға оңтайлы орынға ие болып, бабымды сынап көрдім. Бәрі ойдағыдай, жеңіске жеттім“ –

Хайнан турының 3-ші кезеңінен кейін Арман Қамышев.

Қамышев командаластарымен бірге жарыс күнін алға ұзаған топты қуып жетуге арнады.

Мәреге бірнеше шақырым қалғанда  пелотон мен қашқындар арасындағы уақыт айырмашылығы бір минут шамасында болатын. Дмитрий Груздев пен Андрей Зейцтің арқасында оларды қуып жету мүмкін болып, команда Руслан Тілеубаевтың спринттік таласқа қатысуына мүмкіндік жасады.

Қатты соққан желдің әсерінен топ басында орын алған қарбалас кезінде Тілеубаев пен Қамышев алға шығуға ең қолайлы орында болатын. Бірақ Қамышевтің позициясы жеңіске жетуге жақын болғандықтан, мәредегі таласқа Арман қатысып, «Астана» шабандозы жеңіске жетті.
