  • Dan Martin finishes 2014 in 9th in World Rankings following 2nd place in Tour of Beijing

    posted on 14/10/14

    Dan Martin has finished second overall at the Tour of Beijing following the conclusion of today’s fifth and final stage. That ride, combined with his win in the final monument of the season in the shape of the Tour of Lombardy the weekend before last, means Martin finishes 9th overall in the WorldTour rankings. He was 20th in those standings before the Tour of Beijing started last week, with his overall runner-up slot and stage win in China bringing him into the top 10. Martin’s best finish in the WorldTour was his 6th place of last year. His 9th overall this season is truly remarkable given his crash on the Giro d’Italia that took him out on the opening stage and saw him sidelined from WorldTour competition until the Vuelta began nearly three months later. Martin started the final stage of the Tour of Beijing today three seconds down on general classification. The Garmin-Sharp rider needed to win the stage and pick up the 10 second time bonus on the finish line and also hope overnight race leader Philippe Gilbert (BMC Racing Team) would fall outside the top three. But that was never likely to happen on a flat final stage made for a bunch finish for the sprinters. (Source - Sticky Bottle) [read more]
