CCC-Liv travels to Asia for the final road race of the season. On Tuesday, 22 October, the team will be at the start of the Tour of Guangxi (145 kilometres). This Chinese one-day race is part of the UCI Women's World Tour. Sports director Jeroen Blijlevens takes six strong riders to China: Valerie Demey, Jeanne Korevaar, Ashleigh Moolman-Pasio, Pauliena Rooijakkers, Marianne Vos and Marta Lach.
Sports director Jeroen Blijlevens: “It will be a very challenging race with many differences in altitude. It is an important race for CCC-Liv. On the one hand because we like to show our team to the cycling fans in Asia, and on the other hand because the UCI Women's World Tour classification has not yet been decided. It would be nice if we could take the jersey with Marianne Vos in front of the Asian audience. We must rely on our own strengths. Marianne Vos is doing well, she wants to go for it, Ashleigh Moolman-Pasio is also in great shape.”
