On Sunday the UCI World Tour will make its final stop in Germany for the year, when the EuroEyes Cyclassics Hamburg takes place in Hamburg.
Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka are looking forward to lining up at the sprinter friendly Cyclassics Hamburg with Giacomo Nizzolo, fresh off of his victory at Vuelta Burgos last week, ready to lead our team.
Our Italian sprinter has a rich history with the race, finishing on the podium on 4 previous occasions (2nd – 2014 & 3rd – 2012, 2015, 2016) together with a 6th place finish last year.
This year Nizzolo will be able to count on an experienced leadout team delivering him to the line, with Bernie Eisel, Mark Renshaw & Reinardt Janse van Rensburg hoping to be the difference that has kept Nizzolo off the top step of the podium in Hamburg.
Jay Thomson, Julien Vermote and Lars Bak will complete our team for the 224km classic.
“Cyclassics Hamburg is one of the races I like most in the season. I have some positive memories from the race already, so I’m really looking forward to being up there on Sunday and fighting for a good result again.” – Giacomo Nizzolo
