Harry Sweeny 10th overall at Tour de Langkawi

Hamilton member Harry Sweeny had a great Tour de Langkawi jumping up to 2nd on GC after a fantastic effort in a 4 man breakaway on stage 3 in 40 degree heat. Harry then held onto 3rd overall after the very steep Cameron Highlands stage. On the final stage he double punctured with 6km to go and slipped from 5th to 10th overall. Great stuff!
