Reinardt Janse van Rensburg

Rider

Reinardt Janse van Rensburg was one of only 3 South African riders to have raced on a World Tour team before Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka made the step up to the World Tour last year. Reinardt originally started his career with our African Team and had his most successful season with us in 2012 when he won 14 races that year.

Reinie then went on to form part of the formidable Giant-Shimano leadout that delivered Marcel Kittel & John Degenkolb to numerous victories over a period of 2 years. Returning to Africa’s Team in 2015, Reinie showed he is a powerful rider with a sharp turn of speed and he was pivotal for us in the sprints of the Tour de France when leading out Edvald Boasson Hagen in 2015 and 2017 and Mark Cavendish in 2016.

In 2017 Reinie was also crowned South African National Road Race Champion. During the Tour de France last year, Reinie was being touted as arguably the best leadout man in the world. 2018 could be a huge year for “The Beast”.
