With him remain the other Ethiopian Yasin Haji and the Ugandan Albert Chemutai. Within two laps to the finish Bekele makes the second move and at this poit the victory becomes a question between Bekele and Chemutai, but on the most challenging climb, Bekele seems to have an extra gear and cruises solitary towards the victory.
