Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka
Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka is Africa’s first ever UCI World Tour team and started its first season in cycling’s top ranks in 2016. Three successful years in the Pro Continental ranks preceded our last two years at World Tour and ever since, the team has been building to become one of the top teams in world cycling.
The goal of producing the first African world champion is still very much at the heart of the team’s plans for 2018 and this is evident in our nearly 50% African roster. Our vision has also expanded somewhat as we look to place an African rider on the podium of the Tour de France by 2020.
Some of Africa’s most talented riders will wear Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka’s colors in 2018, with two time Tour de France top 10 finisher, Louis Meintjes spearheading them. Merhawi Kudus, Ryan Gibbons, Amanuel Ghebreigzabhier and Nic Dlamini are among the most talented future African race stars and will look forward to further developing their careers. Together with African stalwart riders like Jacques Janse van Rensburg, Jaco Venter, Jay Thomson and Johann van Zyl, the team is the true home of African cycling. Well known riders like Mark Cavendish, Edvald Basson Hagen, and Steve Cummings add depth to our race winning potential while also helping to further globalize the Qhubeka initiative.
The Qhubeka project remains at the core of our setup and the very reason why our team exists. To provide a platform for awareness about Qhubeka and garner international support for the project, so that they may continue to mobilise the African people, gives our team a greater sense of purpose. We wholeheartedly believe in the #BicyclesChangeLives campaign and it will remain a driving force behind our success.
