MEDIA RELEASE: CHENG JI RETIRES FROM PROFESSIONAL CYCLING

Cheng Ji (CHN) has taken the decision to retire from professional cycling, with the Tour of Hainan as the last race of his career, taking place on October 22nd-30th. After 10 years of service in the pro peloton – of which the last eight years with the team – the 29-years-old Chinese decided to focus on a different career path and starting a family-life in China. Ji is recognized as a valuable member of the team, as he made history in 2015 when he became the first Chinese rider to complete all three Grand Tours. This achievement has been considered a huge milestone for the development of cycling in his home country China.

“First of all thanks to the team, staff and sponsors for their support during all those years and the great time together. Being a Chinese professional rider competing in the biggest races on the calendar has had a big impact with far-reaching consequences in China, and I am glad to have played my part in that. Physically I can continue my career for a few years still at a high European level, but as I become older I have other goals in my life – concentrating on my family. I have recently become a father, therefore I have decided to retire after this season to focus on a different life in China and take my responsibility for my family.”

ROUTE
The first stage runs entirely into the desert, with the first and last parts of about 45km on straight, wide roads. Once in Liwa for the first Intermediate Sprint, riders will find a short circuit characterised by constant undulations over dunes, adding up to a significant total elevation. After a second Intermediate Sprint passage in Liwa, the second part of the stage takes the riders to Madinat Zayed, where the stage will finish.

Last km
A city path with only three proper bends, one to the right and two to the left (the final bend being to the left). The last kms are on wide, straight boulevards, punctuated by wide-curved roundabouts. The final km is straight on asphalt.
