World Tour resumes in China

After a one-week break, the World Tour resumes with a women-only two-star tournament in Zhongwei, China. The main attraction of the tournament, which counts on the Olympic race for Tokyo 2020, is the return of Chinese Olympic medalist Chen Xue, who has been sidelined since last year’s World Championships healing her right shoulder.
