Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka will head to the final grand tour of the season, La Vuelta a Espana, with a strong team spearheaded by South African climber, Louis Meintjes.
The 2018 La Vuelta a Espana gets underway on Saturday 25 August with an 8km prologue in Malaga. Riders will then have to complete a total distance of 3 254km over 21 stages before reaching the finish in Madrid, on 16 September.
Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka will rally around South African, Louis Meintjes, as he targets a top general classification result at La Vuelta a Espana.
Louis said, “I am looking forward to this year’s Vuelta a Espana with Team Dimension Data. It’s been a challenging year for the team and for me personally too, but we have worked hard to prepare well and build up nicely ahead of La Vuelta.
“At Vuelta a Burgos I think we definitely showed that we were on the right track as the entire team was riding really well. With the same team as in Burgos, now heading to La Vuelta, we have some positive momentum going into the race. Certainly, three weeks of racing is a different kind of beast but the goal for me is to be consistent throughout, take advantage when I am feeling good and try to achieve the best GC result possible.”
