Alfie Catalan won his second stage in 4 after out sprinting Merculio Ramos and 7 others at the finish line Tarlac City. The Philippine Army/RC Cola rider also won Stage 11 in his home province Pangasinan.  He denied Ramos a victory in front of his kababayans in Tarlac. Unheralded Southern Luzon/Bicol rider Jerry Aquino finished 3rd.  The penultimate stage had no effects in the rankings as leading teams and riders were preventing each other in making headway.  Mark Galedo is virtually the champion as tomorrow’s final lap will be a mere formality. Cris Joven, Irish Valenzuela, and John Mier kept their respective jerseys.

The successful Ronda Pilipinas 2012 will conclude tomorrow (image from Ronda Pilipinas Official Facebook page)
