The 10th stage of the Vuelta a Espana saw the riders tackle the 36.7km time trial course with Tony Martin (Omega Pharma Quickstep) showing off his world champion pedigree by taking the stage win. Rigoberto Uran (Omega Pharma Quickstep) made it a good day for the Belgian team by taking 2nd place, Fabian Cancellara (Trek Factory Racing) was 3rd. Team MTN-Qhubeka p/b Samsung set out with the plan to have Daniel Teklehaimanot and Sergio Pardilla give the course a real go while the remaining riders conserved some energy for the days to come. Teklehaimanot came home with the fastest time, just 2’56” behind the world.
Former track Olympic silver medalist and 5 time world champion, Theo Bos, will ride in the colours of Team MTN-Qhubeka next season. While racing for the Rabobank and Belkin Pro-Cycling Team outfits over the last 4 years, Bos has been able to take his professional win tally up to 35 race victories. Most recently Bos won a stage in the World Tour event, Tour de Pologne, the overall GC victory at the World Ports classic and 4 stage wins in the crazy bunch sprints of Le Tour de Langkawi earlier in the year. Team MTN-Qhubeka p/b Samsung is delighted to welcome the Dutchman to Africa’s professional cycling Team. Rider – Theo.
