This is the 2013 Le Tour de Langkawi (2.HC) live dashboard. In past years, many of the stages have ended in sprints over a generally rolling parcours, but there are several mountaintop finishes to make the general classification interesting.

February 24 update: Stage 5 is the second and final mountain stage with the summit finish to Genting Highlands that is much steeper than the Stage 3 finish to Cameron Highlands. The last 5 km average 9 per cent. Despite six stages still remaining, the unknown Chinese rider Meiyin Wang has such a big lead that failure to beat him by several minutes will almost certainly mean he will win the general classification. After Stage 5, the final stages are relatively flat and don't go beyond 110m elevation which will, of course, make it much easier to defend a lead. — Steve

February 22 update: Stage 3 starts out flat and finishes with a climb to the Cameron Highlands (see photo above), one of the hilliest parts Malaysia. The two-tiered, gradual 1500m climb includes a cat 1 and hors categorie finish which will bring the climbers to the top of the general classification. The last 5 km are slightly downhill. — Steve

February 21 update: Stage 2 crosses the mountain range that runs down the spine of Malaysia giving us a cat 2 560m climb just before the halfway point of this short 118 km stage (and before the live video). After the descent, it's pretty much a flat run into Kuala Kangsar with a finish similar to Stage 1 as there are two 90 degree turns in the final km. — Steve
