Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka's next race appointment will be Le Tour de Langkawi, which gets underway on Wednesday 24 February and will reach its conclusion after 8 stages, ending 2 March.

 

Le Tour de Langkawi is an event which the African Team has competed in every year since 2008. The 2016 edition of the race will once again be an important fixture on the calendar, specifically because they return to the race as the defending champions. Last year Youcef Reguigui, the Algerian strongman, took an emphatic stage victory to Bukit Fraser before going on to win the race overall.

 

Reguigui will not be returning to defend his title this year as he is set to line up for the African Championships in Morocco later in the week. Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka will still be hoping to keep the yellow jersey in our camp for another year by sending a strong all African team to Langkawi. Reinardt Janse van Rensburg will spearhead the attack and he will be supported by newly crowned South African Champion, Jaco Venter. Nicolas Dougall, Songezo Jim, Johann van Zyl and Adrien Niyonshuti complete the Langkawi roster.

 

The route does not vary significantly from year to year and so our African Team will go into the UCI 2.HC race knowing that the 4th stage to the Cameron Highlands will be pivotal for the general classification title while mass sprints are highly likely to decide the remaining 7 stages.

 

"It is my first time in Langkawi and I am looking forward to having some sprint opportunities to go for a result. I heard that it can get quite hectic in the finals here, but we have a strong team that can bring me into position at the right times. We are not doing Genting this year but Cameron Highlands, which will be the big GC day. The way we do Cameron this year seems a little bit more difficult than in the past, so it is difficult to make a judgement on it now. Either way, we have guys ready for every scenario," van Rensburg said.
