Hong Kong's Wong Kam-po is well placed going into today's final stage of the Tour of Taiwan. Wong, who is looking to regain the Tour title after winning the event in 1996, held on to his fourth position overall after a spirited performance on yesterday's sixth stage. The talented rider was unable to get among the top three finishers but still managed to finish in the first main clutch of racers who crossed after stage winner John Ownsworth of New Zealand. Ownsworth pulled away from the field to finish the 185-kilometre leg from Kaohsiung to Tai Tong in a time of four hours, 51 minutes and 26 seconds. Ownsorth's stage-winning time was more than a minute faster than the chasing pack, which was led by American Cameron Hoffman. Wong's time was clocked at four hours, 52 minutes and 25 seconds. Wong now stands more than two minutes behind overall leader Tsen Seong Hoong of Malaysia. Tsen's aggregate time is 18 hours, 11 minutes and four seconds, with Wong on 18 hours, 13 minutes and 29 seconds in fourth position. Third place is taken by Taiwan's Chen Keng-hsien, who is on 18 hours, 11 minutes and 36 seconds. Man Wai-chung, one of Hong Kong's brightest young prospects, is also in the hunt for a high finish, lying in 10th place overall. Both Wong and Man are looking for morale-boosting performances in Taiwan as they continue their preparations for December's Asian Games. Today's final stage will be held between Tai Tong and Hualien.
