The Tour of Chongming Island marks a significant shift in the season; the end of the one-day Classics and the beginning of the mid-season stage races that are part of the Women's WorldTour. The race takes place from May 9-11 in China.
It's traditionally a sprinter's affair with three pan-flat stages that cater to only the fastest women in the peloton - think Kirsten Wild (WNT-Rotor), Jolien D'hoore (Boels Dolmans) and Chloe Hosking (Ale Cipollini), all previous winners.
After a successful track campaign, Wild enjoyed two early-season victories on the Women's WorldTour this season, so far, at Driedaagse Brugge De Panne and Gent-Wevelgem. She will not be attending the race this year, however, and that leaves the race open for new faces on the podium.
