2013 Tour of Beijing
The 2013 Tour of Beijing will have “the most challenging course in its short history, featuring a mountaintop finish on the fourth stage before the traditional finale from Tienanmen Square to the Bird's Nest Olympic Plaza in central Bejing.
This year's race, from October 11-15, is the last UCI WorldTour race on the calendar. It covers 826 kilometers in five stages. Tony Martin (Omega Pharma-Quick Step) won the 2012 Tour of Beijing but the lack of a time trial stage will limit his chances this year.
"We continue to work hard on the course that provides scenic and exciting stages that both showcase the best of Beijing and provide a challenging race for riders," said Global Cycling Director Alain Rumpf.”
