The red jersey, awarded to the best sprinter, was won by Mekseb Debesay, while the coveted yellow jersey was won by the French Thomas Lebas of the Japanese team Bridgeston.

"I congratulate Lebas Thomas for the win. It was hotly contested at the end. Unfortunately, I was more than 2 minutes behind in the general classification... I wear the red jersey for best sprinter, which is still a good thing." Mekseb Debesay said.

The Eritrean team finished third in team standings behind Japan and Russia.
