On Saturday Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka will be involved in two one day classics, the Belgian UCI 1.HC Primus Classic and the Italian UCI 1.1 Memorial Marco Pantani.
The team for the Primus Classic will be similar to that of our lineup for Kampioenschap van Vlaanderen, with again a strong sprint potential focus ready for the 198km race.
Giacomo Nizzolo & Mark Cavendish will be joined by Reinardt Janse van Rensburg, Bernie Eisel, Julien Vermote, Jay Thomson and Lars Bak at the Primus Classic.
The Memorial Marco Pantani, could also lend itself to the fast men but the earlier climbs over the 200km parcour will make it a difficult race to control.
Ryan Gibbons will have Enrico Gasparotto, Tom-Jelte Slagter, Roman Kreuziger, Gino Mader, Jacques Janse van Rensburg and Jaco Venter on the start line with him.
