Marianne Vos (CCC Liv) finished her season with a third position in the Tour of Guangxi that confirmed the overall victory in the UCI Women's WorldTour.

Vos finished the last race of the women's WorldTour in the third position just behind Chloe Hosking and Alison Jackson. This placement confirmed her first position in the individual ranking of the UCI Women's WorldTour.

"It is a very nice way to finish the road season," said CCC-Liv's sports director Jeroen Blijlevens. "She has also earned this jersey, because she has collected the points in various competitions, in sprints as well as in the most difficult races."

The last race of the calendar was 145 kilometres long and although it included two hard ascents, everything came together for a final sprint. Ashleigh Moolman-Pasio was second on the first climb of the day and she conquered the second ascent in the first position, which gave her the mountain classification jersey at the end of the competition.

"We wanted to make the race hard on the two climbs that followed quite soon after one another," explained Blijlevens. "This worked out quite well as the peloton broke apart twice after the efforts of all our riders. But after these climbs, the peloton stalled each time, resulting in a mass sprint."
