David Brickhill-Jones has continued his outstanding Park World Tour form by finishing second behind series leader Oystein Kvaal Osterbo (NOR) in Jinhua. BJ has consolidated second place in the overall standings in front of new Swedish sprint sensation Martin Johansson (3rd in Jinhua), but will need to lift in the final two races to have any hope of overtaking Osterbo and taking the Park World Tour crown.

With her second victory in three starts, Tatiana Riabkina (RUS) has moved into second in the overall standings but will need a miracle to overtake runaway series leader Dana Brozkova (CZE). Brigitte Gruniger (SUI) and Maria Berqkvist (SWE) were close behind in second and third after each held the lead at some stage during the race. In an incredibly tight race only 37 seconds separated the top ten women in Jinhua.

There was good news for Ben Rattray who returned to racing only four days after dislocating his shoulder at his Park World Tour debut in Shanghai. Understandably Rattray took a conservative approach to the race but still managed a creditable 20th out of 25 competitors.
