It’s been two weeks since we have asked you, if Reinardt Janse van Rensburg and Jacques Janse van Rensburg are related? Well, we knew – and plenty of you did to!
It was a hard task to draw from all the correct and even more creative answers. However, we found a winner in Ricardo Filipe Santos Gonçalves. Here’s his answer.
Yes, they are related. They are connected by great values, that drive all the riders and all the staff of Team Dimension Data. The values of riding for Qhubeka, of representing Africa at the World stage, of being the ambassadors of more than 1 billion people, often neglected, who want the world to know that true champions come from Africa too. In Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka, everyone is Janse van Rensburg. Everyone is Cavendish. Everyone is Anton. Everyone is Boasson Hagen. Everyone is Africa. All united to give their best, to represent a continent. 28 different riders, who together can achieve more than the sum of their parts. But, if you ask in terms of bloodline, no they are not related.
Ricardo, well done! We will contact you shortly. To all other fans – stay tuned, we’ll have more raffles coming up throughout the season.
