Team MTN-Qhubeka p/b Samsung will have riders at three different national championships in Europe this weekend. The first African-registered Professional Continental team will especially look to Germany, where Milan-San Remo winner Gerald Ciolek, Andreas Stauff and Martin Reimer will be at the start. Lithuanian Ignatas Konovalovas and Spaniard Sergio Pardilla will start as soloists in their homelands, while Italian Kristian Sbaragli will pass on the race.
An Englishman, a Frenchman, a Basque, a Welshman, a Spaniard, and a Canadian head out on a bike ride… No, seriously… that’s what we did today in Freiburg, Germany, as we prepped for the next 3 stages of the Giant Tour
The ITT at the GIANT TOUR was unbelievable. As part of the Giant Bicycles international media team, we were treated to the full “pretend you’re a pro” experience: riding Giant’s pro race bikes in a mountain stage, a fast flat stage, and yes – a full-blown TT stage on T-Mobile’s time machines.
