Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka will get its World Tour campaign underway at the season opening Santos Tour Down Under, which takes place from the 17-24 January in Adelaide, Australia.
After Cameron Meyer, Nathan Haas and Mark Renshaw got us off to a great start at the Australian National Road Champs last week, our African Team are motivated to make an impression at our first UCI World Tour event of 2016.
Once again the Santos Tour Down Under will get underway with the curtain raising People’s Choice Classic Criterium on Sunday 17 January. The stage race then officially gets underway on Tuesday the 19th, and ends after 6 stages on Sunday 24th. Stage 5 is expected to be the race defining stage as it ends with two ascents up Willunga Hill. The remaining 5 stages have options for both the opportunists and sprinters.

2015 Santos Tour Down Under winner, Rohan Dennis is confident about his success in 2016 and said that Australian riders are in top form this year.
Dennis confirmed that Australian riders Simon Gerrans, Richie Porte, Cameron Myer and Nathan Haas will be stiff competition throughout the Tour.
“Gerrans you can’t go past. Obviously Richie – he’s always good, but he’s my teammate. There are always a couple more guys – Cameron Myer and Nathan Haas – Australians in general are very strong in nationals,” he said.
When asked what sets Australian riders apart from their competitors, Dennis mentioned the often sweltering weather conditions that Australian riders are acclimatised to.
