Team Dimension Data unveils new kit

by CyclingTips

Team Dimension Data unveiled its 2017 team and new look at a presentation on the Cape Town Waterfront. Lead by Mark Cavendish, Omar Fraile and Daniel Teklehaimanot, all 28 riders were present for the event.

“2016 was a year that fulfilled many dreams and out performed our expectations as a team, with our partners and the Qhubeka charity,” said team manager Douglas Ryder.

“Our goal for 2017 is to be even better together, better in the way we integrate as team mates, better with our partners and better connected to our fans. With this team of incredible individuals we look forward to building on our successes of this year.”

The team kit is similar to this season, but the five finger salute symbol showing their support for the Qhubeka charity is subtly printed on the back of the jersey with 28 hands, symbolizing the children who receive help through the 28 riders racing.
