The Tour of Chongming Island is a wrap for another year. The Stage three is by far the most picturesque of the race, going through some beautiful parkland on roads that aren’t as wide as airport runways. There were huge crowds in all the towns we passed through today. Whilst I didn’t count them all I’d say only the Women’s Tour beats Chongming Island for crowd sizes lining the route for ‘stand alone’ women’s races across the season.
Tomorrow will officially be the longest day of my life: crossing the international date line on the way to California for the next UCI Women’s WorldTour race, the Amgen Tour of California!
Here’s a selection of photos from the final day on Chongming Island.
