    Aquino, whose father Jerry Sr. was a veteran of the fabled Marlboro Tour, will wear the red jersey in Wednesday’s grueling 206-km Stage Four from Daet, Camarines Norte to Lucena, the longest race in the 10-stage event presented by LBC and backed by the MVP Sports Foundation.

    Aquino gained a 10-second time bonus to take the lead with a total time of 9:43:39 from Mark Julius Bordeos of Bicycology-Army (9:43:46).
