Antón successfully defended his climber's jersey in today's penultimate Tour of Beijing stage and is therefore destined to wear it all the way to the end as long as he finishes tomorrow's processional final stage. The Galdakao-native holds an insurmountable four-point lead over Mondory. Other than that the team kept a pretty low profile throughout. A Pérez - aided by a strong-looking Mikel Astarloza - tried to mix it up in the sprint but ran out of gas towards the end and came home 15th. The rest of the riders all finished mid-pack.
