So I just got back to my home in Girona after completing the Tour de Langkawi with the team. It was a great race for us with Reinardt winning the overall. Here is my take on the week’s racing… Stage 1 Le Tour de Langkawi, maybe you can also call it Le Tour de Opportunities. With 6 rider teams it’s a difficult race to control and those willing to risk might succeed. I tried, but got caught 5km before the finish. Stage 2 It was a hot day and the humidity is something else in this part of the world. What was really nice is.

Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka Continental took part in the Tour of Good Hope, a 5 stage national level event in Paarl, South Africa, which started on Monday 29 February and ended earlier today. It was the first outing for our continental boys after a very successful u23 South African National Championships last month. After a bunch sprint decided stage 1 where Jayde Julius came home in 3rd place, Stefan de Bod’s good run of form, which recently earned him the u23 South African road and time trial title, continued as he took a commanding victory during the stage 2 37km individual time trial. Teammate.

The next UCI World Tour event is upon us, as Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka are set to start the Paris-Nice on Sunday 6 March. It will be the first time our African Team takes part in the prestigious “Race to the Sun”.   Starting with a 6km prologue on Sunday, riders then have to contend with 7 tough road stages as they head from the North of France to the South, ultimately finishing in Nice on Sunday 13 March. After the flat prologue, the opening 2 stages could be 2 possible opportunities for the sprinters. Stage 1 will see riders deal with 4 short cobble.
