Now in its 7th round, the new UCI Women’ WorldTour sees the world’s top talent take on the first WorldTour race outside of European soil and the first stage race of the UCI’s professional women’s calendar. This will be the 14th edition of the Tour of Chongming, which had previously been part of the, now defunct, UCI Women’s World Cup, starts on May 6th and concludes on the 8th.
Lining up for Cylance Pro Cycling will be Sheyla Gutierrez (ESP), Alison Tetrick (USA), Rachele Barbieri (ITA), Erica Zaveta (USA), and Doris Schweizer (SUI).
Coming off a successful campaign in the Tour de Yorkshire where the team took home the overall QOM jersey and featured in the most animating break of the day, Cylance Pro Cycling is bringing a squad aiming for success.
“The welcome here has been fantastic,” Said Alison Tetrick of her first trip to China. “It looks like this [rain] will be our weather for the next couple of days! But it is warm, balmy, and what an incredible host island!”
There will be a live HDTV streaming feed for the race, links to which will be shared on our twitter account: @cylancecycling
