After winning Gree-Tour of Guangxi's opener, and taking the first GC leader's jersey of the Chinese race, Team LottoNL-Jumbo's Dylan Groenewegen went close an encore in stage-2 on Wednesday, October 17th. The Dutchman rode his Oltre XR4 to third in the final sprint, after 145,2 km with start in Beihai and finish in Qinzhou (China). Groenewegen was preceded only by Pascal Ackermann and Fabio Jakobsen.
Thanks to this result, the 25-year-old sprinter from Amsterdam held the GC lead in 5:40:29 (4 seconds ahead of Ackermann and Jakobsen) and the Points Classification edge: 23 points, one more than Ackermann (22).
Bianchi supplies the Team LottoNL-Jumbo with four models engineered with the Bianchi CV system powered by Countervail:
•             Oltre XR4, designed to maximize the aerodynamic advantage and control
•             Specialissima, the ultralight frame, perfect for GC riders, it’s extra stiff for increased traction and stability at high speeds, and maximum control on the descents
•             Aquila CV, the ultimate time trial machine, designed to increase power output and rider's energy, with maximum control with each pedal stroke
•             Infinito CV, the ideal bike for the Classics, providing remarkable control on uneven surfaces and reducing muscular fatigue
