Tour of Chongming Island 2019

As if there was any doubt, Lorena Wiebes has arrived! I don’t think anyone has ever won all three stage at the Tour of Chongming Island? It’ll be great when we get back to full strength fields for sprint races and she’s giving Kirsten and Jolien a run for their money as the peloton’s top sprinters.

Throughout the race it’s been so hot lugging cameras around in the moto gear but after I saw the conditions Balint is working in at Elsy Jacobs I decided things could be worse! 😉
