Some post-race photos from Stage 1.
Peter Morse and Daniele Defranceschi, shown with Jet Fuel's number 1 Taiwan fan, rocked the field sprint.
Guest rider Shane Braley suffered a sheared pedal-cleat mid-race. He managed to hang on for the last hour of the race while pedalling with only one leg, at 45km/h. The marks on his head are from the industrial-strength Kaoshiung City air!
This rider from Poland got these marks from the industrial-strength pavement! He still managed to finish.
