GP du Canton: Reinardt Janse van Rensburg sprints to 3rd place

Alexander Kristoff (UAE-Emirates) sprinted to the victory at the GP du Canton in Gippingen, with Andrea Pasqualon (Wanty-Groupe Gobert) placing 2nd and our Reinardt Janse van Rensburg rounding out the podium.

The GP du Canton took place in Gippingen this afternoon with the 186km race ending in a mass sprint. Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka’s protected rider for the day, Reinardt Janse van Rensburg, was right in the mix and looked like he may just take the win before being passed in the dying meters of the race.

The Team had worked well to look after our South African sprinter, over the undulating course, with Ben King also sneaking into the top 20 at the end, placing 18th.

A good result for our team, as we now turn our attention to the Tour du Suisse which gets underway on Saturday.
