Daniel McLay has won the second stage of the Tour of Guangxi on Friday. After a relatively flat ride of 152.3 kilometers, the New Zealander proved to be the strongest in the mass sprint.

The 27-year-old McLay convincingly pushed his bike first in Qinzhou, China. The German Pascal Ackermann had to settle for second place just like Thursday in the first stage, while the Italian Matteo Trentin finished third again.

For McLay it is his second day win of the season. The rider of EF Education First, who will ride for the pro-continental Arkéa Samsic next year, won the first stage of the Herald Sun Tour at the end of January.

The Tour of Guangxi is the last WorldTour race of the season. The Chinese stage race will be continued on Saturday with a mountain stage of 143 kilometers.
