Journeyman Belorussian pro Kanstanstin Siutsou will race for Dimension Data in the coming season, the team announced Wednesday. The South African-licensed Pro Continental team is bolstering its roster significantly after a breakthrough 2015 season, which has some suggesting that the squad will aim to bump up to the WorldTour for 2016.

“I’m really happy to join Team Dimension Data in 2016,” said Siutsou, who will enter his 12th year as a professional after four years with Team Sky. “Having raced with some of the riders in the past, I’m sure we’ll gel well together. I’m also looking forward to share my experience with the African talents on board and to make an impact for the Qhubeka charity. It’s a great opportunity to race for a bigger cause, and I’m glad to take it on.”

Siutsou, 33, has three career Giro d’Italia stage wins to his name and finished ninth overall in 2011. He is also a two-time national time trial champion.

Dimension Data is also bringing Cameron Meyer aboard for 2016. The team announced the signing of the 27-year-old Australian Tuesday. He leaves Orica-GreenEdge after four years that saw him win a stage in both the Tour de France and the Giro. He also won the Tour Down Under in 2011.

Expectations are high in the Dimension Data camp after it scored a major coup in signing sprint star Mark Cavendish earlier this fall.
