Stage 6: Olav Kooij wins final stage
The WorldTour season ended with a familiar sight, as Jumbo-Visma completed a double triumph on the final day of the Tour of Guangxi. Olav Kooij produced a late, late surge to win stage 6 in Guilin, while Milan Vader finished safely in the peloton to secure final overall victory.
Juan Sebastián Molano (UAE Team Emirates) threaded his way through the pack beside the barriers, to claim victory in the sprint on stage 5 of the Tour of Guangxi. Milan Vader (Jumbo-Visma) finished safely in the pack to maintain his overall race lead ahead of the final stage.
Milan Vader (Jumbo-Visma) secured his first professional road victory on stage 4 of the Tour of Guangxi. He was part of a lead group that formed on the queen stage and then made his winning move in the final few hundred metres to take the win. Vader's performance also moved him up into the overall race lead.
Olav Kooij (Jumbo-Visma) managed to fight his way through mayhem to sprint to victory from a reduced bunch on stage 3 of the Tour of Guangxi. In the overall standings, Dries De Bondt (Alpecin-Deceuninck) moved into the race leader's red jersey after picking up time bonuses in the day's break.
Jonathan Milan (Bahrain-Victorious) hit the front early on the second stage of the Tour of Guangxi and held off all challengers right to the line so he could celebrate a clear-cut victory in Qinzhou.
