The organisers of the Gree - Tour of Guangxi have brought the race back after a hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Enric Mas was the last rider to win the overall title back in 2019.

The event joined the WorldTour calendar in 2017 and is current in its fourth edition. Tim Wellens won the inaugural event with Gianni Moscon winning the race in 2018.

The Tour of Guangxi holds a similar format for its fourth edition, with three clear opportunities for the sprinters in Beihai, Qinzhou and the regional capital Nanning ahead of the summit finish at Nongla on Sunday. 

The race concludes with two relatively hilly days around Guilin, though the flat run-in on each stage means that a mass finish is again likely.

  • Stage 2: Beihai to Qinzhou, 149.6km
  • Stage 3: Nanning to Nanning, 134.3km
