A world-class peloton will travel to China for the final round of the Women’s WorldTour held at the Tour of Guangxi in Guilin on October 22. The series is currently led by Annemiek van Vleuten (Mitchelton-Scott) but only by a mere five points ahead of Marianne Vos (CCC-Liv) and 170 to third-placed Lorena Wiebes (Parkhotel-Valkenburg). The one-day race will ultimately decide and crown the overall winner of the 2019 Women’s WorldTour.

Van Vleuten is not registered to compete in the final event after leading the series for more than half of the season. The versatile Dutch rider has had an outstanding year with victories at Strade Bianche, Liège-Bastogne-Liège and a strong of second places at Amstel Gold Race, Flèche Wallonne and Tour of Flanders. She went on to win her second consecutive Giro Rosa and then culminating her successful season with a victory in the road race at the UCI Road World Championships in Yorkshire in September.
