Pedal along with the tour of Poyang Lake. The sixth stage taking us to Fuzhou, Jiangxi Province. The city circuit covering 117 kilometer, including three sprinters.

And Italian Mattia Frapporti was looking to hold onto his overall lead, after overtaking Australia's Samuel Volkers last stage.

The riders started from the cultural square, the flat road would help them pick up speed. 

It was very difficult to make a break in the first nine kilometers. Australia's Cisco Racing Team among the leaders.

Things were tightly bunched up in the first two laps around Menghu lake. But in the third lap, a group of ten broke free from the peloton, and would be about two minutes in front of the pack, til the final lap.
