Enric Mas is among the plethora of riders saying goodbye to his current team at the Tour of Guangxi. The week in China draws his three years at Deceuninck-QuickStep to a close, and the 24-year-old is already looking to the future, and the off-season.

Mas has raced from the Volta ao Algarve through to October and, unless he takes victory on the hilltop finish on stage 4, will have endured a winless season. Ambitions were high at the start of the season, but a debut Tour de France bid ended in a disappointing 22nd place. It seems, then, like the right time for a change of scenery.
