When you read this, we’ll be busy fighting at the Ardennes classics. Always incredibly tough but beautiful racing. We kicked-off with Amstel Gold, where we gave everything, fighting to the line.
Please ensure that you are following the team’s LinkedIn profile where we’ve launched a series which showcases our journey to the start of the Giro d’Italia and just what it takes to get to the Grande Partenza.
You can read the first instalment below, where I share my experiences of this incredible race and reflect on our team’s very special history with it. What a journey it has been!
Over 3000 ASSOS Bicycles Change Lives jerseys have been pre-ordered. It's been incredible to see this jersey being loved by the world, knowing that each one will help change lives through Qhubeka's work in South Africa.
As always, please reach out to us if there is anything you'd like to see in future editions. We look forward to hearing from you.
All the best,
Aart Vierhouten (Sports Director) gives us a short explanation into the difference between the two blocks of racing and how that impacts rider selection. ♻️
The Team Qhubeka ASSOS service course in Oosterhout, Netherlands, is the beating heart of our organisation. It's here, with Ubuntu - "I am because we are" - emblazoned across the walls where all the magic happens.
Just arriving at the start line of a Grand Tour is an achievement in its own right - a result of months of meticulous planning - and so we asked Tom van de Gracht (Head of Operations), Kevin Suarez (Head Mechanic) and Gunther Landrie (Head Carer) to give us some insight into what it takes, to get the start of the Giro. Explore the piece here.
The latest episode of Unclipped speaks to one of Team Qhubeka ASSOS' key men providing a fascinating insight into a rider who has played a key role for Alberto Contador, among others, and who is now looking at taking the next step in his own career. Listen to the episode here.
