Cervélo looks forward to Dimension Data’s 2017 season

Adding to the excitement surrounding Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka, the Cervélo-sponsored squad recently introduced its 28-rider roster and new kit for 2017.

DDD won 32 races and climbed more than 70 podiums in 2016, its first year in the UCI World Tour. This included five stage wins and Yellow and Green jerseys at the Tour de France, and an overall KOM title at the Vuelta a Espana.

“2016 was a year that fulfilled many dreams and outperformed our expectations as a team, with our partners and the Qhubeka charity,” said Douglas Ryder, DDD’s Team Principal. “With this team of incredible individuals we look forward to building on our successes of this year.“

Cervélo’s Global Marketing Director, Antoine Ballon, echoed these sentiments: “This team continues to amaze us all. The success and enthusiasm they demonstrated all over the globe fighting for the right cause is something no other team can match. We are proud to be their bike partner of choice, and we cherish the relationship we have with the riders to keep making our bikes better.”

Lead by Britain’s Mark Cavendish, Spain’s Omar Fraile and Eritrea’s Daniel Teklehaimanot, the entire team was introduced to fans and the media on the Cape Town Waterfront. It also includes:

  • Igor Anton (Spain)
  • Natnael Berhane (Eritrea)
  • Edvald Boasson Hagen (Norway)
  • Stephen Cummings (Great Britain)
  • Mekseb Debesay (Eritrea)
  • Nicolas Dougall (South Africa)
  • Bernhard Eisel (Austria)
  • Tyler Farrar (USA)
  • Ryan Gibbons (South Africa)
  • Nathan Haas (Australia)
  • Reinardt Janse van Rensburg (South Africa)
  • Jacques Janse van Rensburg (South Africa)
  • Ben King (USA)
  • Merhawi Kudus (Eritrea)
  • Lachlan Morton (Australia)
  • Adrien Niyonsuti (Rwanda)
  • Ben O’Connor (Australia)
  • Serge Pauwels (Belgium)
  • Youcef Reguigui (Algeria)
  • Mark Renshaw (Australia)
  • Kristian Sbaragli (Italy)
  • Jay Robert Thomson (South Africa)
  • Scott Thwaites (Great Britain)
  • Johann van Zyl (South Africa)
  • Jaco Venter (South Africa)

The new jerseys, meanwhile, highlight both the Qhubeka charity and the team’s international makeup. Indeed, during the South African training camp that’s currently underway, each rider will personally give a child a Qhubeka bike. “The amount of exposure that we got for Qhubeka was beyond of what we could have imagined, stepping up to the World Tour,” Cavendish said. “That’s what we want to build on to do more. We want to do more together as a team, with our partners and fans, and raise more than the 5,000 bikes that we raised this year.“
