Ji said that the team were in good shape and had enjoyed an ideal preparation for the race.

“We have had a very good preparation,” Ji said. “A training session in Altea [Spain] and the Tour of Turkey. I will be more than satisfied if we can win a stage and if I finish the race. I am expecting a huge fight.”
