African team headlines Tour of Austria



This weekend Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka will not only be starting the Tour de France, but once again our African Team will be lining up at the UCI 2. HC Tour of Austria on Saturday, in Feldkirch.

Austria's premier national tour will consist of 8 road stages this year, with 2 mighty summit finishes, stage 3 finishing up the Kitzbuheler Horn and stage 5 up the Grosglockner, these being the two key stages of the race. The Tour of Austria has been a happy hunting ground for our African Team in the past, thinking back to just last year when Ben O'Connor soloed to victory on stage 5.

For this years edition of the race it is not surprising that we will have a climber focused team for the 8-stage race. Louis Meintjes will head up our roster with Steve Cummings, Ben King, Jacques Janse van Rensburg and Lachlan Morton all ready for the uphill Austrian gradients.

Scott Thwaites will make a welcome return to racing after recovering from a serious training crash in March. Completing our line-up will be a former Tour of Austria stage winner, Johann van Zyl.
