Douglas Ryder: Team Update

We are actively engaged with potential partners and our current partners, as we work to secure our future for 2022

JOHANNESBURG, South Africa, October 15, 2021 / APO Group / –

Today we are unable to submit our first UCI WorldTour license application for next year to the sport governing body.

We are actively engaged with potential partners and our current partners, as we work to secure our future for 2022.

Since its inception, our team has given hope and opportunity to more than 50 African riders who have raced for us at Continental, Pro Continental or World Team levels, and have thus had the opportunity to show their talent and make their dreams come true.

The recent announcement that Rwanda will host the 2025 World Championships is a great moment for our sport, and we are very proud of the role we have played in supporting Africa, its cycling potential and as a destination to ride. . To see Biniam Ghirmay of Eritrea finish 2nd at the U23 World Championships this year was incredible. He was only 14 years old when Daniel Teklehaimanot wore the King of the Mountain jersey during the Tour de France 2015 with our team. Their stories, as well as Nicholas Dlamini’s journey from the Cape Townships to the Tour de France, are inspiring.

In our Continental and World Team outfits, we have staff and riders who champion our message – bikes change lives – and allow us to be a platform to raise awareness and fundraise for the Qhubeka charity.

We are completely unique in the sports landscape as a goal-driven organization which, during our ten-year partnership with Qhubeka, has seen our team raise over $ 6 million for the charity and in doing so , has changed thousands of lives.

We remain convinced that our story is not over, our journey will continue, to continue to change lives through cycling.

I have always said that our dream for this team would be to see a young man from Africa, who starts his journey on a Qhubeka bike, one day run on cycling’s most famous road – the Champs Elysees. This will see the dream fully realized.

If you, or someone in your business network, would like to join our team and continue to change lives, please contact us here ([email protected]). Thank you for your support.

Ubuntu- I am because we are.
