Gree-Tour of Guangxi
The 2018 WorldTour season draws to a close over the coming week at the Gree-Tour of Guangxi, a new addition to the WorldTour calendar. The race is contested over six stages, the first of which is suited to the fast finishers followed by a stage for the puncheurs of the peloton on day two. A flat run into the finish on stage three will see the sprinters come to the forefront of the action once again with the climbers having the chance to shine on day four. The final two stages feature various climbs scattered along their parcours before a flat run into the finish. Velon will bring fans on-board GoPro highlights from the debut event.

Team Sunweb coach Arthur van Dongen (NED) said: "We have two goals for the race; first to look for sprint possibilities with Max and Michael and second to explore our GC chances with Wilco. The first three stages will likely see a sprint finish where we will go full gas to take a stage result for Max. The uphill finish on stage four will certainly see some time gaps so this is an important day for our GC ambitions. The final two stages will likely see a reduced group go to the line so it's important that the team stay sharp to bring Wilco into a good position ahead of the finale. We bring a strong team to help chase our goals in China and after a brilliant 2017 WorldTour season we hope to end our year on a high."
