Natnael Berhane to race II Lombardia

Natnael Berhane will be on the starting list of the II Lombardia, formerly Tour of Lombardy, on Saturday.

Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka will participate with a squad of eight riders.

The African team lines up at the race for the second time in its history as the 2016 UCI World Tour race season comes to a close.

Eritrean rider, Natnael Berhane, was the first black African rider to win a European race when he won the Queen stage and the overall classification of the Tour of Turkey in 2013.

He also won the most prestigious African stage race in 2014, the Tour of Gabon by craftily outsprinting multiple Tour de France stage winner Luis Leon Sanchez.

Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka aim to be one of the strong teams on Saturday with Igor Anton, Edvald Boasson Hagen, Serge Pauwels, Omar Fraile, Kanstantsin Siutsou, Jaco Venter and Kristian Sbaragli joining Berhane.

Natnael Berhane, Jaco Venter and Omar Fraile will form the backbone of the squad given the climbing and mountainous nature of the course, Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka said.
