17 Jan

Harvey Sicam continued the tradition started by his tw0-time tour champ uncle Jacinto Sicam in making a name in the Philippine‘s top cycling tour.  Jacinto Sicam was the champion in 1981 and 1982. Harvey Sicam riders for the Roadbike Philippines/RTS team. He was able to beat Ryan Tugawin of Team Enrile and Rey Martin of V-Mobile/Smart in their sprint to the finish.

Red Jersey holder Santy Barnachea of Philippine Navy padded his lead by 24 seconds from his nearest pursuer Tomas Martinez of Team Tarlac.  He now leads the pack by a least 2:25. Rudy Roque also created some separation from George Oconer in the race for the top young cyclist.  Ronald Oranza is now the holder of the Blue Jersey after finishing just 7 seconds behind the stage winner.

It was also a good day for the hosts Y101FM/Cebu as skipper Warren Davadilla wrested the King of the Mountain (KOM) jersey from Irish Valuenzuela.
