EISELBernhard

Bernhard Eisel is veteran of the pro peloton as he looks to begin his 17th season as a professional with Team Dimension Data in 2017. The Austrian diesel engine has become synonymous for chewing up kilometers on end at the front of the peloton while often acting as road captain for the teams he has ridden for.

Bernie has 12 victories as a pro with arguably his most prestigious being the Gent-Wevelgem. The 35 year old Austrian has always looked at home during the spring classics and his experience on the Belgian and French cobbles will stand our African Team in good stead for the coming season.

Bernie has also been long time teammate of Mark Cavendish, a right hand man if you would, over the last couple of years and has contributed largely to the success of the Manxman.
