Dimension Data to fight for stages at BinckBank Tour


Dimension Data has chosen a team that can fight for stage victories at the BinckBank Tour. The South African squad will have riders suitable for all the terrains.

The former Eneco Tour will take the riders through several terrains in its seven stages. They will ride on roads of the Amstel Gold Race, stages that resemble Liege-Bastogne-Liege and some that are similar to other spring classics.

"The main goal is to win a stage," said sports director Jean-Pierre Heynderickx. "We bring a good mix of experienced riders, young sprinters and strong rouleurs.

"The sprinters will get a chance already on the first stage but the wind can also be an important factor. We are ready for whatever happens."

The South African team will have its main focus on getting a stage victory, with riders that can get in the mix and fight in the sprints.

Dimension Data's line up for the BinckBank Tour: Tyler Farrar, Reinhard Janse van Rensburg, Mark Renshaw, Ryan Gibbons, Scott Thwaites, Kristian Sbaragli, Jay Thomson and Johann Van Zyl.
