Lineup & Preview: GP du canton d’Argovie

On Thursday 8 June, Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka will once again lineup for the GP du canton d’Argovie in Switzerland. The UCI 1.HC event has been a regular fixture on our African Team’s calendar over the last few years and we are happy to be back again.

The 54th edition of the GP du canton d’Argovie takes place on Thursday and our African Team will hope to keep its good run of results at the Swiss event going this week. The familiar 188km circuit course is one which Kristian Sbaragli has taken a particular liking to by placing 4th last year and 5th in 2015. Our punchy Italian will hope to use his experience at the race to deliver a podium result in Gippengen.

With the likes of Reinardt Janse van Renburg, Ben King and Lachlan Morton in the mix alongside Sbaragli, we have a few race winning cards up our sleeve this year. Nic Dougall, Mekseb Debesay, Merhawi Kudus and Jaco Venter will complete our lineup and ensure we start with one of the strongest teams on the day.

Kristian Sbaragli – Rider
I have done well at this race the last two years so I am looking forward to having a good race again. I have just finished the Giro and I can say I have some good feelings at the moment. I hope I can use my condition to deliver a top result for our team.
