Amir Zargari from Azad University Team Iran, as predicted, has succeeded in achieving the Polka Dot Jersey as ‘King of Mountain’. The most prestigious Jersey, Yellow Jersey, was reached by the racer from Iran, Mehdi Sohrabi.
Abdullah Fatahillah, previously unpredicted to be a winner at the Stage II said he was satisfied and proud with the achievement he has just reached. “I hope in the next stage I am able to make the same performance,” he said.
