This week on the GCN Racing News Show we have world cup action in cyclocross and track, the final WorldTour race of the year at the Tour de Guangxi, the Japan Cup, a number of transfers and retirements, including our very own Oscar Pujol, whilst Andrea Tafi looks to come out of retirement at the age of 52.

Team Sky’s Gianni Moscon ended his season on a high with a win at the last WorldTour event of the year, the 6 day Tour de Guangxi over in China. Moscon had set up his overall victory by winning the uphill finish on stage 4, taking a solo win, 5 seconds in front of Felix Grosschartner of Bora Hansgrohe.
Team Sky defended his lead over the rain soaked and crash marred final two stages, stage 5 won by Matteo Trentin, his first victory as European Champion, and stage 6 by Fabio Jakobsen, who delivered Quickstep’s 72nd and 73rd wins of the year at the race.
Ryan Mullen fulfilled a dream, or possibly nightmare, by getting himself into a day long breakaway with the Panzerwagen Tony Martin on stage 5 - he described it as a fun day out, although I’m not sure many others would have found it quite so enjoyable.
The cyclocross season continued at the weekend with the 2nd round of the Superprestige in Boom on Saturday, whilst the World Cup made a return to Switzerland the following day.
On the men’s side, it was yet another display of dominance from Mathieu Van Der Poel - in Boom, he did just enough, getting the better of World Cup leader Toon Aerts by 4 seconds, whilst the following day he took advantage of a dropped chain for Wout Van Aert, putting in a scintillating lap where he averaged over 30kph. His margin of victory 8 seconds on the day. World Champion Van Aert had decided to skip the Superprestige, so it was another frustrating result for him, although he did pick up his first win of the cyclocross season on Thursday at the Kermis Cross in Ardooie.
