Sports Director, Jackson Stewart explained that the team will be looking to get a good result on the flat stages.
“We are going to China to finish off our season on a high note. There are several stages which will most likely end with a field sprint and we will look to be competitive on those days with our fast team. Josef Černý, Kamil Gradek, Gijs Van Hoecke, Guillaume Van Keirsbulck and Francisco Ventoso will try to race aggressively and should be able to help our sprinters, Jonas Koch and Jakub Mareczko, who has had great success in the races held in China.”
“It’s not only the last UCI WorldTour race of the season but, also the last race in general for the team in 2019 so, we hope to finish the season off strong,” Stewart said.
Jakub Mareczko is looking forward to return to China, where he has won over 30 races.
“It’s the last opportunity for me to showcase myself in the sprint this year and I hope to take full advantage of it. There are a few flat stages on the menu and despite the long season I’m still very motivated to perform well there.”
“I’m very excited to come back to China where I always have a very nice experience and where in the past I was able to get nice results. I believe that I’m in a good shape and I feel that I’m ready to finish the season off in a good fashion.”
“We’re going to China with a strong and fast roster which is ready to race aggressively and attentively in the finale, where positioning is the key.”
