Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka will start the GP du Canton this Thursday, the traditional UCI 1.HC event that precedes the Tour de Suisse.

The GP du Canton will take place over it’s usual circuit parcour around Gippingen, totaling 186km. A few undulations will keep the puncheurs interested, as always, but it is the sprinters who have won the last 4 editions of the race.

Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka will have Reinardt Janse van Rensburg leading our line up. The South African has previously finished 5th at the Swiss one day race, in a mass sprint.

Michael Valgren, Roman Kreuziger, Tom-Jelte Slagter, Ben King & Gino Mader will also all be at the GP du Canton ahead of Tour de Suisse, while Jay Thomson completes our lineup for the Gippingen race.
