EXN MORALES edges out PNSI Oranza, reduces rival’s lead to 38 seconds.

So far, EXN top dog Jan Paul Morales will go down in history as the pro elite rider who had the most successive overall GC wins (stage one to four ) in LBC Ronda Pilipinas 2022.

Morales finished off the race with an impressive clocking of 4 hours, 41 mins, and 31 seconds, enough to upset PNSI Oranza in a close-run. The EXN second man registered an average stage speed of 36.33 kph in Ronda’s second most challenging stage.

Despite his winning ways on the first-four stage and latest on stage 8, EXN Noodles top gun Morales still considers his attempt to recoup the red jersey a holy grail.

For the last four stages, the red jersey for EXN Morales has been so elusive. Now, he is 38-second short of equaling Oranza in the GC and thirty-nine seconds short of conquering the overall individual general classification.

Moreover, PNSI Oranza, EXN Morales, G4G Perez, PNSI Lizardo retained their respective leadership while the EXN rookie Joshua Pascual now regained the rookie leadership that the EXN U-23 rider previously held on stages 2 and 3.

On the other hand, PNSI continues to widen its lead over EXN and Go For Gold. The Excellent Noodles cycling team is lagging by 13 minutes and 54 seconds, while Go For Gold falls behind by 38 minutes and 12 seconds.

Now, PNSI Jhon Mark Camingao has moved from the 11th to the ninth spot, dislodging G4G wheeler Daniel Ven Carino from the GC top 10.

Meanwhile, the Commissaires panel has tagged six more riders DNF while 5 riders OTL as the race conclusion nears. Sixty-six riders are anticipated to partake in the penultimate and Queen stage on 19 March 2022.
