"My main task today was to keep the blue jersey, so I had been keeping an eye on other competitive Asian riders. After today's race, there will be more climbs, and my team will turn to help Yonnatta Monsalve, winner of 2017 Tour of Qinghai Lake, and also the best climber in our team."
 
The third stage will be held Tuesday from Duoba to Guide.
