Tour of Guangxi

October 17th to 22nd

Same as last year, this week the season of World Tour races ends with the 2019 Tour of Guangxi.

The parcours doesn't look overly thrilling, with five (maybe more or less reduced) sprint stages a little, unlikely to be too selective mountain-top finish on day #5








With #bora Ackermann, #ccc Mareczko, #mitchelton Trentin, #ineos Halfvorson, #uae Gaviria and #trek Degenkolb there are some good sprinters around, but in general the competition isn't particularly deep. Even less so for the overall


There's supposed to be live coverage for all stages in China this time, but I haven't seen any information about a European broadcaster (in the US it's live on Flobikes) picking it up yet.

    there's potentially some excitement added by the fact that it's the final (apart from the Japan Cup, where no one of interst - in that regard - is going to participate) race counting for the Olympic qualification. The Top 6 in the World Rankings by Nation get 5 spots for Tokyo, those from 7 to 13 only 4:

    RANK NATION POINTS
    6.      *es SPAIN      9687.62
    7.      *si SLOVENIA      9421.4
    8.      *de GERMANY      9205.33

    Slovenia's season is over, so they're out of it, but Germany is sending quite a big delegation to China. Ackermann is probably the favorite for all sprints (40pt each), Degenkolb may score some points as well, and if Schachmann wins the overall (it's a big "if", to be fair, he didn't look splendid recently), they could come back in play.

    Spain still has Mas around to fend back though, so it's probably not going to happen. #teamde would basically need to win all stages + the overall with Mas finishing 10th or worse in GC

    I would struggle to find a useful 5th German to add to the Tokyo team anyway. Buchmann, Schachmann, Martin, Geschke and _____ ?

    Denz or Arndt?

    Maximilian Levy again? ;)

    yeah, it's more about weakening Valverde :D.

    Maybe Kämna. Arndt would be the most likely choice though, I guess.

    There's supposed to be live coverage for all stages in China this time, but I haven't seen any information about a European broadcaster (in the US it's live on Flobikes) picking it up yet.

    all stages are streamed live by Velon (not available in the USA, Canada and Singapore):
    • 17/10: Stage 1, Beihai - Beihai, 135.6km, flat circuit: 0700 - 0845
    • 18/10: Stage 2, Beihai - Qinzhou, 152.3km, flat: 0700 - 0845
    • 19/10: Stage 3, Nanning - Nanning, 143km, hilly circuit: 0700 - 0845
    • 20/10": Stage 4, Nanning - Nongla Scenic Area, 161.4km, mountain top finish: 0700 - 0845
    • 21/10: Stage 5, Liuzhou - Guilin, 212.2km, hilly stage: 0800 - 0950
    • 22/10: Stage 6, Guilin - Guilin, 168.3km, hilly stage: 0700 - 0845
    It says "all times Central European Time", but I guess they mean CEST. Estimated finish time is around ~8:40 CEST (7.40 in the UK) for most days at least.

    Additionally, the following channels have broadcasting rights:
    • Action 24 Greece
    • Cyta Cyprus
    • Dubai Sports TV
    • ELTA Taipai
    • Flo Sports/Bikes USA & Canada
    • Fox Sports ASIA (ESPN)
    • L'Equipe France & DOM TOM
    • TV2 Denmark
    • TVB Hong Kong
    I can't find anything about that on l'Équipe's website though

    Velon and these broadcasters will also show highlights of the women’s race which takes place on Tuesday October 22.

    well, it finishes at 6 in the morning or so, so no one would watch it anyway

    The first stage of the men's race today saw more attacks than expected, but in the end it came back together for a sprint, narrowly won by #uae Fernando Gaviria
