Karol Domagalski sealed One Pro Cycling's second win in as many days at the Tour of Korea, taking stage three to Daejeon to move up to fourth in the general classification.

The Pole followed in sprinter Chrie Opie's footsteps, with the Brit winning stage two the previous day; he sits second overall and leads the points classification in the Far East race.

British Continental squad JLT Condor are in action in Korea as well, with Russ Downing picking up two consecutive top-10 finishes and sits 12th in the general classification.

Secrets of the Toolbox: JLT Condor

There are plenty more opportunities for the sprinters in the final five stages of the eight-day race, with a series of relatively flat stages to conclude the race.

Stage six could be where the general classification is decided, though, with a category three climb after the halfway mark and then two uncategorised ascents in the final 40km.

While part of the JLT Condor team are racing hard in Korea, the other half is continuing its domination of the Pearl Izumi Tour Series, with Jon Mould picking up his fifth individual win in eight rounds.
