CCC Team will finish its season at the Gree-Tour of Guangxi with a versatile roster that will fight for stage victories.

The Polish team will finish its first season with the new sponsor at the Chinese race with a line-up that will try to get stage glory. "We are going to China to finish off our season on a high note," said sports director Jackson Stewart. "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 Cerny, 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."

One of CCC riders in the race will be Jakub Mareczo, where he has taken over 30 victories. "It's the last opportunity for me to showcase myself in the sprint this year and I hope to take full advantage of it," commented the rider. "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 good shape and I feel that I'm ready to finish the season off on 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."
