The Vuelta Ciclista al Pais Vasco reached its conclusion today in Eibar with Alberto Contador (Tinkoff) time trialing his way to both the stage and overall victory. Nairo Quintana (Movistar) was 2nd on the stage and Sergio Henao (Team Sky) was 3rd. The 16km course was not one for the time trial purists at all as riders were sent straight up a vicious 5km climb before a tricky descent toward the finish, taking in another steep ramp of over 20% just before the line as well. It was no surprise when the climbers populated the top of the results sheet but Steve Cummings and Serge.

Once again, the Paris-Roubaix is upon us. On Sunday, 10 April, 25 teams will line-up for the 114th edition of the “Hell of the North” and our African Team will also be there, ready to take on this mythical monument of professional cycling. 257km await the riders, 52.8km of them will be over the 27 different cobble sectors on route. With the first sector only coming 98km into the race, the final 3 hours of the race are set to be drama filled. Add into the equation the possibility of rain come Sunday, and you have all the makings of an epic spring classic. Team.

The 205km 104th edition of Scheldeprijs ended in a mass sprint. Marcel Kittel (Etixx-Quickstep) crossed the line first, ahead of our Mark Cavendish (Dimension Data for Qhubeka) with Andre Greipel (Lotto-Soudal) placing 3rd. As a three-time winner of Scheldeprijs, Cavendish was the team’s protected rider for the day. Early in the race 6 riders escaped, and Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka took control of the race. Tyler Farrar’s designated role was to shelter Cavendish during the race and deliver him to the finish line as the final leadout man. He executed according to plan, and Cavendish was perfectly placed within the last kilometer. The strongest.
