Astana Women's Team is ready to start the last race of the UCI WorldTour: the Tour of Guangxi. The formation will be led by the Cuban Arlenis Sierra.

The Tour of Guangxi is a one-day race of 145 kilometres that will have roughly the same course as the last stage of the men's race. In the last 55 kilometres, the riders will face a couple of short climbs that will surely reduce the numbers in the peloton and will leave a slim group to fight for the final victory.

Sierra has had an outstanding season in which she managed to reach top-five positions at the Giro dell'Emilia and the GP Beghelli just after the World Championships of Innsbruck of 2018. Earlier on the season, the Cuban also won a stage at the Amgen Tour of California and finished in the fourth place of Gent-Wevelgem.

Sierra will have the support of her fellow countrywoman Jeidy Pradera, as well as of the Italians Elena Pirrone and Sofia Bertizzolo, the latter is set receive the prize for the victory in the final UCI Women's WorldTour Youth ranking.
