From the start of the mountain stage teammates were at the front, with Ruslan Tleubayev and Dmitriy Gruzdev taking the first big action to break up the peloton
Bakhtiyar Kozhatayev made several key attacks beginning around 20km to the finish, to bring the peloton down to a small handful of riders before the final climb.
Zeits attacked on the final hill, with one rider following him, but on the 15km descent Zeits was able to leave all of his chasers behind to mount a solo ride to the finish.
Zeits also won the Best Asian Rider classification competition, and Astana Pro Team solidified its standing as the Best Team in the 2015 Tour of Hainan.
