Paris-Roubaix: Dimension Data underdogs in search of luck
April 07, 2018 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Ravaged by injuries to several high-profile riders, and without a clear favourite, Dimension Data head into Paris-Roubaix hoping that fortune will be on their side. The team are missing Mark Cavendish, Bernhard Eisel, and Scott Thwaites through injury, while perennial Classics hope, Edvald Boasson Hagen, is still searching for his best from having had his spleen removed during the off-season. The Norwegian claimed fourth in Dwars door Vlaanderen before finishing 19th at the Tour of Flanders, and having finished fifth in Paris-Roubaix two seasons ago, will be looking for a strong performance. Julian Vermote dislocated his shoulder in the Tour of Flanders but is scheduled to race this Sunday.ADVERTISEMENT For directeur sportif, Rolf Aldag, the weather for Paris-Roubaix will be a significant factor. Although rain is not scheduled for Sunday the recent wet weather has left several sectors of cobbles covered in thick mud. Im not a weatherman so I cant predict what it will be like on race day but as far as our recon was concerned on Thursday, Ive never seen conditions like that before, Aldag said. Aldag was one of the few riders to race and finish the last truly wet Paris-Roubaix back in 2002, finishing 25th on a day that saw less than 45 riders make it to the velodrome.

Mark Cavendish aiming to return at Tour of California after Milan-San Remo crash
April 01, 2018 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Mark Cavendish (Dimension Data) is targeting a return to action at the Tour of California following his heavy crash in the finale of Milan-San Remo last month. The Manxman has endured an ill-starred beginning to the 2018 season, as crashes forced him out of the Abu Dhabi Tour, Tirreno-Adriatico and Milan-San Remo. He sustained an ankle injury and a fractured rib in the most recent incident after flipping over some traffic furniture at speed. Cavendish will hope to kick-start his build-up to the Tour de France by returning to the peloton at the Tour of California, which takes place from May 13-19. He will then seek to add to his running tally of 30 stage victories at the Tour de France.ADVERTISEMENT Id like at least to make California. Thats another six weeks away, so I should be all right, Cavendish told the Observer. I dont know how my fitness will be but I should be all right. At least if I can come back by then I should be all right for the Tour. Cavendish told the Observer that he has not yet resumed training on the road, but has been riding on the turbo trainer for up to an hour. He spent part of the last week in Belgium receiving treatment and he was among the former Quick-Step riders who attended a dinner to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the companys involvement in professional cycling on Friday evening. Im pretty happy to be back on the turbo trainer after a crash like that. Ive been riding through the pain to do it, said Cavendish, who confirmed that he will not compete in this months Commonwealth Games, his second time in succession to miss the event through injury.

Cavendish finished second in 2016 and 2017, previously partnered with Bradley Wiggins and Peter Kennaugh.

Thwaites undergoes back surgery after fracturing vertebrae
March 22, 2018 (21:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Dimension Data rider Scott Thwaites has suffered several fractures to his vertebral column following a training crash. In a statement released on the Dimension Data website, the team said that Thwaites had undergone successful surgery to stabilise the fractures on Tuesday night. He is in a stable condition and remains in hospital but is expected to be released in the coming days. The team gave no information as to the circumstances of the crash. Thwaites had recently competed at Milan-San Remo and was expected to be an important part of the teams Classics line-up.ADVERTISEMENT Thwaites injury is another blow for Dimension Data, who have several riders out of action due to injury. Team leader Mark Cavendish broke a rib in a horrific crash during last weekends Milan-San Remo. The Manxman had already broken a rib when he crashed at speed during the opening team time trial at Tirreno-Adriatico. He also suffered concussion following a crash at the Abu Dhabi Tour when the race directors car braked suddenly ahead of the peloton. Bernhard Eisel is also out of competition at the moment after breaking his wrist and sustaining facial injuries in a crash at Tirreno-Adriatico. Reinardt Janse van Rensburg has not yet made his racing debut in 2018 following groin surgery at the end of last year. Although, the team hopes that he can return to competitive action next month. Mekseb Debesay took a heavy fall at the Tour de Langkawi earlier this week and further tests revealed that he had fractured his pelvis. Illness has also taken its toll with Tom-Jelte Slagter pulling out of Paris-Nice at the start of the month due to sickness. Mark Renshaw had to drop out of Tirreno-Adriatico due to sinusitis but returned to action at Milan-San Remo. You can read more at Cyclingnews.com More...
Quick-Step come away empty-handed from Milan-San Remo
March 18, 2018 (21:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
In the discussion and prognostication in the week leading up to Milan-San Remo, when it came to Quick-Step Floors all the talk, as always, was of 'options' or 'cards to play'. As it was, they came away from the first Monument of the season with nothing to show for their superior strength in depth, with Elia Viviani their highest finisher in 19th. Viviani was one of three nominal leaders in a squad that also included last year's third placed Julian Alaphilippe and two-time podium finisher Philippe Gilbert. While Viviani would wait for a bunch sprint on the Via Roma, Gilbert and Alaphilippe could go on the attack on the Cipressa or Poggio climbs. Even without Fernando Gaviria, fifth last year but ruled out this time with a broken hand, they seemed to have all bases covered.ADVERTISEMENT Gilbert, however, was out of the running before the Poggio had begun after being held up by Mark Cavendish's heavy crash. Even before that, hopes of emulating last year's Tour of Flanders victory with a long-range attack had been scuppered by the headwind blowing up the Ligurian coast. "When Cavendish crashed, I was just behind him and managed to somehow squeeze and make it through, but lost some positions and couldn't return to the front, as the bunch was going full gas," Gilbert said. "Before the race, I thought about trying something from afar, but with the strong headwind on the Cipressa it was impossible, there really wasn't any opportunity to attack. I'll take from this race the fact that I felt good, despite the rain and the cold temperatures, and look now with optimism to my next races." You can read more at Cyclingnews.com More...

Cavendish suffers brutal crash in Milan-San Remo
March 17, 2018 (21:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
MarkCavendish suffered another serious crash in Milan-San Remo, his third bad fall of the young 2018 season.The Dimension Data rider was relatively well positioned with just under 10km to go near the foot of the Poggio, but as the peloton parted at a traffic divider, Cavendish ran out of room to avoid it and took a direct impact. The waist-high bollard launched Cavendish through the air, and he somersaulted, landing heavily on his back. Cavendish started the season off with a stage win in the Dubai Tour, but crashed on the first stage of the AbuDhabiTour, suffering a concussion and whiplash when the race's lead vehicle suddenly slowed when its automatic braking system engaged, leading to the chain-reaction crash.ADVERTISEMENT He returned for Tirreno-Adriatico, but crashed again in the opening team time trial and was out of the race, having missed the time cut. He suffered a broken rib, facial lacerations and scraped hands, knees and hips in the fall, but was deemed fit to start Milan-SanRemo. He was tucked nicely in the middle of the peloton as it sped toward the Poggio in the last 10km of Milan-SanRemo when at the exit of a roundabout, he ran out of room to avoid a large bollard. Dimension Data announced on Twitter that he was being assessed by the medical team before the race ended. Cyclingnews will update this report with more information as it is available.

Mark Cavendish playing support role at Tour of Oman
February 13, 2018 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Mark Cavendish says his main ambition at this weeks Tour of Oman will be to help his Dimension Data teammates in the battle for the overall classification. Cavendish is riding the six-day event for the first time since he rode the 2012 edition. Cavendish started his season last week at the Dubai Tour and opened up his win account with victory on stage 3. Aside from Cavendish, none of his teammates has made the short journey from Dubai to Oman, with climbing the priority and Merhawi Kudus in with a shout of a podium finish. There will be opportunities for the Manxman, however, and he will look to seize upon them. "Obviously, the race is bookended by sprints so I'll give it a shot and see what I can do. I am here without any lead-out guys," Cavendish said. "I'd like to support the climbers and the GC guys. Merhawi was strong here last year and I'd like to be part of helping him get up there. Obviously, with the sprints, it makes no difference for me to bounce around and be up there for the sprint."ADVERTISEMENT The team will also have Jacques Janse van Rensburg, Natnael Berhane, Nic Dougall, Nic Dlamini and Scott Davies in their arsenal. The Tour of Oman was not originally on Cavendish's early season race programme. However, with the team short of riders and an opportunity to avoid jet-lag and cold weather, Cavendish put his hand up to remain in the Middle East for a little while longer. "I was a last-minute addition. I was supposed to do Dubai and then fly home and then come out for Abu Dhabi, he explained. "Then we looked at the stage distances and I'd be doing a similar work-load if I went home. We were also a few riders down in the team so rather than calling up a reserve for another race, I said that I'd stay out and do it. I'm quite happy now, because it's snowing at home."

Pauwels, Morton and Kudus in Dimension Data team for Vuelta a Espana
August 16, 2017 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Serge Pauwels, Omar Fraile and Igor Antonwill lead Dimension Data at the Vuelta a Espaa, while Lachlan Morton makes his Grand Tour debut. Eritreas Merhawi Kudus, so impressive in the opening part of the season, will also be on hand for the final three-week tour of the year. As expected, there is no place in the team for Mark Cavendish. The Manxmanis currently training in Italy and could return at the Tour of Britain although he hasyet to confirm a date for his return to competitive action after he broke his shoulder blade in a finishing straight crash on stage 4 of the Tour de France. Pauwels returns to the Vuelta for the first time since 2013 and heads up Dimension Datas challenge for stage honours at the Vuelta alongside Igor Anton, who has twice finished in the top 10 overall and who crashed out while wearing the leaders red jersey in 2010.ADVERTISEMENT Two-time king of the mountains Omar Fraile will have the freedom to go on the offensive throughout the Vuelta and will look to replicate the stage victory he picked up at the Giro d'Italia in May. Kudus will hope to shine on the summit finishes that punctuate the route. The Eritrean, fourth overall at the Tour of Oman and ninth at the recent Vuelta a Burgos, has targeted the Vuelta since the beginning of the season and was withheld from both the Giro and the Tour. The Vuelta is traditionally a hard race with lots of climbing, that is why we are bringing a lot of climbers to the race, Pauwels said. We have a strong group that can race aggressively and try to hunt for stage wins. I am really looking forward to my second Grand Tour this year. I have taken a short break after the Tour then put in a good training block last week. I hope to take my opportunity as well by picking a stage and trying to get the victory.
