Gunung Raya finish out of Tour de Langkawi after landslides on route

Riders may have gone to bed expecting a climbers finish for stage 7 of the Tour de Langkawi but they’ll be waking up to the news that the Gunung Raya finishing ascent is off the agenda, with bad weather and landslides on the route having led to a late change.

The stage 7 course was expected to spiral into the centre of Langkawi to tackle the 13-kilometre climb at the end of an intense 90.8km stage. While the racing will go ahead on Monday, it will instead be on the route that was meant for stage 8. That delivers terrain that is more likely to play into the hands of the sprinters or a break, with the original stage 8 course delivering a finishing loop with repeated category 3 climbs near the end before a downhill run into the finish line in Kuah.
