The Volta a la Comunitat Valenciana will be the first race of the season where our African Team’s group of climbers will get to test their early season form. The UCI 2.1 race will begin on Wednesday 1st February in Orihuela, Spain and will conclude after 5 stages on Sunday the 5th in Valencia. The 68th Volta a la Comunitat Valenciana will serve as the opening race of the season for all 8 Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka riders that will line up at the stage 1, 38km team time trial on Wednesday. The race against the clock is sure going to be a shock.
