On Friday Team Dimension Data will start its first of a series of season ending one day classics, the Kampioenschap van Vlaanderen. The UCI 1.1 event in Belgium will be our first of 11 one day events, which we will compete in over the next month.
The sprint friendly Kampioenschap van Vlaanderen takes place on Friday, over a 11km lap in Koolskamp, which will need to be completed 16 times. Team Dimension Data will start the race with a solid lineup of sprint power.
Giacomo Nizzolo & Mark Cavendish will be joined by Bernie Eisel, Julien Vermote, Jay Thomson, Lars Bak and stagiaire, Alexander Konychev.
For Konychev it will be his 2nd race for the World Tour team this year, after our continental team rider helped Nizzolo to a good stage win at the Vuelta Burgos last month.
