Origin of the Name — Lizard Skins: “There were two original founders, myself and Lance Larson. Lance sold out to me in 2001. Lance’s brother was working on a project for a college class that involved creating a name and a logo for a company. He came up with the name Lizard Skins and the original yin and yang style logo. He didn’t have any actual company in mind when he created the name and logo he just thought it would be a cool name and catchy logo. Not sure how well he did on the assignment but I would give him an “A” if I were the teacher. After about one year, Lance asked if he could use the name and logo for a company.Lance’s brother said ‘sure’.”

Company Beginnings: “It was extremely small. When we started, we could fit the entire business on one table. Our first ad was a twelfth page for Mountain Bike Action magazine. We had to race to FedEx to get it sent out and barely met the deadline for it. We immediately started receiving calls from the ad before we were even really ready to take them. If we had missed that ad deadline, Lizard Skins might have never taken off.”

Tour de France Stage 3

Mark Cavendish Powers to Le Tour Stage Win

Tour de France Stage 3

Mark Cavendish stole the show during stage 3 of the Tour de France by powering to an incredible photo finish sprint victory over Andre Greipel (Lotto-Soudal). It would be the 28th Tour de France stage win of the Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka sprinters career, and his 2nd victory at this year’s edition of the race after his stage 1 triumph.

It was a long 223km haul from Granville to Angers, and when only Armindo Fonseca (Fortuneo Vital Concept) tried his luck in the early break, it resulted in a rather pedestrian like stage. Fonseca was allowed a maximum lead of just over 9 minutes as the peloton knew they could bring the lone Frenchman back at will. Thomas Voeckler (Direct Energie) decided to join the lone escapee with 80km to go but being a flat stage, the writing was on the wall, it was going to be a sprint finish.

Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka were again looking to deliver Cavendish to prime position for the finale in Angers, after extensive research went into the final kilometers of the stage by our African Team. With 8km to go and the break caught, our African Team started putting its plan into action as Bernhard Eisel lined Reinardt Janse van Rensburg, Edvald Boasson Hagen, Mark Renshaw up in front of Mark Cavendish.

The young South African, Janse van Rensburg, was instrumental in determining the final result as he put in a huge turn from 6.5km to go until 2.5km to go. Boasson Hagen was then in control as the pelotot went under the kilometer to go banner, before Renshaw piloted Cavendish to prime position from where to launch his sprint. The Manxman came off the wheel of the German champion in the final 150m, as both riders lunged for the line. The finish-line photo showed that Cavendish had won by a mere tyres width over Greipel and Bryan Coquard (Direct Energie) took 3rd place.

Another incredible win for Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka and Mark Cavendish, who is now, with 28 stage wins, tie 2nd with Bernard Hinault for the most number of stage wins at the Tour de France ever. After today’s magnificent team effort, Cavendish moved into the lead in the Green Jersey points competition with 123 points and Peter Sagan (Tinkoff) 2nd, on 116 points.

Mark Cavendish – Rider

I am incredibly happy with this second win at the Tour de France. We planned it for a long time this morning, we had a long team meeting about how the finish would go and it went pretty much exactly how we planned. It’s good that the guys stayed calm and collected. It would have been easy for them to have pulled and then got out of the way with the hectic final, but they stayed patient. Edvald stayed patient, Mark stayed patient and then at the right minute I was able to get on Andre Greipel’s wheel. I knew he’d hit it early, actually he was stronger than I thought he’d be. Andre has guts, he rides like that. I actually didn’t beat him in the sprint, I beat him with the lunge. This is another great win for the team but more importantly, it raises the profile of Qhubeka yet again, and that is the reason we are here.

Nairo Quintana in the Red Jersey!

334 kilometers


Heat and nerves were again the enemies of Nairo Quintana and Movistar Team in the 18th stage of the Vuelta.  The Colombian was well supported by Erviti, Sutherland and Rojas until the last three kilometers.

STATEMENTS:

Nairo Quintana:  " It was a nervous day with some wind, but resolved without problem, very attentive and the team backing me well. At this point of the race legs go well; There fatigue, it is end of season and feels everything we carry, but that 's normal. We hope to finish these days equally well and solve that challenge I have with myself, starting tomorrow in the time trial.

It gives me confidence the new Canyon Speedmax chrono and travel is not entirely flat; my opponents does not help them much about me a path where it costs more pick up the pace in places where you have steep slopes, curves ... It is still a weakness that we have before the match, but somewhat less. I hope not to have to rectify myself tomorrow, but I hope, sure, losing seconds, but do not lose minutes.

Every time we are closer: today another day saved, the stages are not dislike us-otherwise, are tours that come it very well and we will give everything for this jersey . "
