Our Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka Continental riders took part in the Palio del Recioto, a UCI u23 race in Italy. Amanuel Gebreigzabhier rode an excellent race to finish in 3rd place. The team’s first podium in Europe this year. Thanks to Stiehl Photography for the images..

After winning the Tour de Langkawi overall, I had to jet back across multiple time zones to take part in the World Tour Tirreno-Adriatico which started a week later. Here is how the race went for me… Stage 1 Calm before the storm! Team time trials are one of the most intense facets in our sport and this one I found particularly hard after Tour of Langkawi a few days before, time and climate changes. Stage 2 Getting ready for a intense stage with two of the most experienced men in the sport when it comes to sprinting. Cant ask for better mentors than Mark Cavendish and.
