08/28/2019

The South African team will be one of the most awaited on the Bretagne Classic - Ouest-France. At the start of the race, she will simply be the most experienced team of all. With two men having already placed second at Plouay and two former winners of the Amstel Gold Race, she will be there to win.

The seven men entered by Team Dimension Data have accumulated no less than 26 entries at the biggest cycling race in Brittany. Arriving with Michael Valgren Andersen, second last year behind Oliver Naesen, the South African team presents a leader who will be considered one of the big favorites of the day. To support him he will count on very solid teammates like the former winner of the Amstel Gold Race, Roman Kreuziger, but also Giacomo Nizzolo, he also former 2nd of Plouay in 2013 and author of five Top 10 on the breton classics.

Promoted to the WorldTour in 2016, Team Dimension Data arrived in Plouay the year of the creation of the Bretagne Classic, succeeding the Grand Prix. So far, the South African team has distinguished itself with its leader Edvald Boasson Hagen, 10th last year. The Norwegian will be absent this year but his team will not be less strong, far from it.
