The Tour of Poland will take place from the 4th to the 10th of August this year and Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka will once again line-up for this tough World Tour stage race. The Tour of Poland has become a regular fixture on the World Tour calendar and is the first World Tour stage race after the Tour de France. Some riders will try to carry their form from France into this years edition of the race, while others will take the start fresh and ready for the 2nd half of the season. This years edition of the race starts with 3 lumpy stages.
The Classica San Sebastian will take place tomorrow, as per usual, on the first weekend after the Tour de France has ended. Once it again it will be a really tough test for the World Tour peloton, and Team Dimension Data will be there to duke it out with the best. If there was a World Tour classic that was mistaken for a monument of cycling, it would probably be the Classica San Sebastian. Although still relatively “young”, with this years race being the 38th edition, at 229km in length and covering 8 difficult categorised climbs, the Classica San Sebastian always attracts one of.
