Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka will once again be racing the Tour of Slovenia, as our final stage race before next months Tour de France. The UCI 2.HC event gets underway on Wednesday, ending after 5 stages on Sunday.
Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka will have a sprint heavy team heading to the Tour of Slovenia as Mark Cavendish leads our lineup. In their first race’s back since the Giro d’Italia, Giacomo Nizzolo & Enrico Gasparotto also return to action.
Stage 4 should be the main GC day with a big cat 1 climb coming late in the stage. For all the other stages, we can expect the puncheurs to take advantage of the many climbs while the sprint teams will try to keep them under control.
“The Tour of Slovenia will be an important race for us as it is our last race before National Championships and then the Tour de France. We have our main sprint riders in Slovenia, with a goal of getting them to work well together and try to execute their sprint finale plans as often as possible. It will be tough with the many climbs in beautiful Slovenia, but it should make for an exciting race too.” – Alex Sans Vega, Sport Director.
