Wong Kam-po will head for the hills as he attempts to close the gap between himself and long-time leader South African Kosie Loubser in this morning's 90-kilometre individual road race at the Tour of South China Sea, which moves to Coloane, Macau. Wong has always done well in the tour's toughest leg and he is likely to make his move and put himself in a winning position for tomorrow's final leg of the seven-race series at the Macau Jockey Club Square on New Year's Day. Hong Kong's Asian Games gold medallist stayed in third place overall despite finishing second in yesterday's fifth stage at the Zhuhai Sports Complex. Wong finished just behind old rival Tang Xuezhong - the same Beijing rider he beat to win last year's Chinese National Games gold medal - in a blanket finish to the 30-lap, 97.5-kilometre criterium. Wong can't wait to return to one of his favourite hunting grounds as he guns for his third straight South China Sea title. 'The racing has been done mainly on flat ground so far, but I like hilly terrain and I will get that in Coloane. 'Hopefully, I will show my strength in the hills,' said the 25-year-old rider, who is 50 seconds behind overall leader Loubser and 31 seconds behind second-placed Tang. Loubser finished fifth but shared the same time as the top 55 riders home, clocking two hours, 20 minutes and 54 seconds. Hong Kong coach Shen Jinkang was confident Wong will claim his stake in the tour in Macau today. 'The top three overall placings could change dramatically. Tang and Wong have a liking to the hills and I expect them to challenge for the overall title. 'I don't expect Loubser to do too well in tomorrow's stage because he struggled a bit in Guangzhou, which has similar terrain to Coloane,' said Shen. Tang was lucky to hold on to his first placing yesterday after surviving a three-way protest by Hong Kong, Australia and South Africa. Tang was accused by his fellow riders of 'dangerous riding' in the last 200 metres of the race. But he was cleared of any charges and managed to keep his place. The Beijing rider allegedly veered suddenly from right to left in the sprint home almost causing a major spill, but the chief judge decided not to change yesterday's placings.
