Like many in the peloton, Guillaume Martin is drawing a long season to a close at the Tour of Guangxi. At the start of stage 3 in Nanning, he reflected on the 2019 season, his last with Wanty-Groupe Gobert, and outlined a broad plan for 2020.

Martin has been a consistent performer throughout the year, despite racking up 87 race days and counting, a number that will rank him in the top ten of the pro peloton once Guangxi is done. But that will change at his new team, Cofidis, he says.
