Huaxing's six-man line-up is the same as the previous two single-day matches, from left to right: Shen Yutao, Julian Trario, Xu Changquan, Lu Xianjing, Lucas DeRossi and Willie Smit.
The race ends in the centre of Nova Mesto, with gentle slopes and stone brick roads in the last few hundred metres. Tip: "Novo Mesto" means "new town", and there is a city in the Czech Republic with a similar name, Nové Město na Moravě, which has hosted several UCI Mountain World Cups.
Shen Yutao was blocked by a crash, and then insisted on a successful finish.
Julian Telario rushed to 11th place.
So far, the Huaxing team has successfully completed three matches in Slovenia. The team returned to Kayseri, Turkey, for altitude training.
