Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka keeps on putting its mark on this year’s Giro d’Italia. Again today, the team was involved in the heart of the action as Jacques Janse van Rensburg was part of a strong breakaway, which got caught with just 5 km left to go. On paper, today’s stage looked perfect for a big break to make it all the way. Therefore, it was no surprise to see countless attacks in the opening kilometers. However, a group never succeeded in distancing the peloton for good until after over 100 km of racing. The Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka riders had been involved.
Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka had an amazing end to Tour of Norway. Edvald Boasson Hagen sprinted to victory on the final day and thereby also took the overall win in his home race. The team started out Sunday’s last stage knowing that if Boasson Hagen could make podium in the final sprint, and race leader Pieter Weening (Roompot) didn’t, he would win the race overall. Extremely motivated and determined, our African Team controlled the stage perfectly, always keeping the breakaway within reach. As the riders took on the final circuit in Oslo, a strong headwind made it even more difficult for the break to.
The Amgen Tour of California came to an exciting conclusion today thanks to Lachlan Morton and the Rally Cycling Team taking the final stage by the horns. Evan Huffman (Rally Cycling) was the final stage winner, David Lopez (Team Sky) was 2nd and Nicolas Edet (Cofidis) finished 3rd. Morton was 4th across the line and George Bennett (LottoNL-Jumbo) won the race overall. The final stage left Mountain High on a 125km mostly downhill route, finishing in Pasadena. Starting with a slightly treacherous descent, which saw 2 riders crash out of the race, the peloton neutralised the racing until reaching the valley road. From then on.
