The stats & stories from inside your team

What a restart to the racing season with hard-fought races in blistering temperatures. Soon we will start our sixth Tour de France and in our previous five appearances, we’ve won seven stages which is pretty incredible.

This is also a very special Tour de France for us in that we’re representing Qhubeka for a 10th year as the official charity of our team; it's the purpose that drives us and gets us going every single day. The fact that we can use our success to enable and give hope, independence and opportunity to people across South Africa and Africa through the Qhubeka charity is something that is really dear to us and to be supporting Qhubeka for the past 10 years and them supporting us has been pretty cool, and is something that we’re really proud of.

Our 2020 Tour de France squad 🇫🇷

We are excited to introduce our team which will represent us at this year’s Tour de France, shaped by NTT, moved by Qhubeka.

Strade Bianche 🇮🇹

Strade Bianchi, Italian for “white roads” was our first UCI race this season. It is adeptly named after the historic white gravel roads in the Crete Senesi, which are a defining feature of the race. What a day it was!

Before and After

Our beautiful BMC Teammachine SLR01’s before and after Strade Bianchi. Our mechanics used some Morgan Blue extra cleaning agent to wash them down post stage.

Milano-Sanremo:

It was the first monument of the year and Giacomo Nizzolo claimed an excellent 5th place for us at Milano- Sanremo. This is what he had to say about the team’s performance.

Meet the Team: Tom van de Gracht 🇳🇱

Role in the team: I am currently the Head of Operations, but I started off as a chef for the team.

Duration with the team: Four years now…

Best moment so far: Every time we win a race or a stage. We all get to celebrate it and you get the feeling of being part of it, together, no matter where in the world you are.
