Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka’s Mekseb Debesay showed off the team colors nicely in the Italian one-day race Coppa Sabatini as he joined the early breakaway. Unfortunately, the group was caught on the final kilometers. Knowing that today’s race would most likely come down to a sprint finish, Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka was eager to make the race as hard as possible. After a fast start, a group of seven riders finally managed to distance the peloton and establish a solid gap. Debesay had been very attentive and joined the breakaway, which quickly gained over six minutes on the pack. The front group worked.

Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka are happy to announce Igor Anton has renewed his contract, keeping the Basque climber at our African Team for the 2018 season. Scott Davies will also form part of our 2018 roster as the young Brit joins us from Team Wiggins.  Having started the Giro d’Italia and Vuelta a Espana the past two seasons in succession with our African Team, we are happy to confirm Igor Anton will begin his 3rd season with Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka in 2018. Before illness got hold of Anton at the 2017 Vuelta a Espana, the 34-year old was riding to a top.
