I can't believe we're already here, lining up at the Grande Partenza for the 104th Giro d'Italia!
For four intense weeks - 21 stages - it promises to be another epic trip around Italy where we'll look to continue showcasing our partners and intense racing centred around our purpose.
I recently had the privilege of being hosted at Olympic House in Lausanne by IOC President Thomas Bach and receiving a certificate of recognition for being an Olympian.
This is more than individual recognition, but rather shining a spotlight on the hugely positive influence of sport in the world, and the lasting impact we can achieve, when working together.
I hope you enjoy the start of the Giro and have a wonderful weekend.
All the best,
We’re excited for to take on the 104th Giro d’Italia! For our team annocucment, we called upon an extra special set of supporters to present our team: step forward Team Qhubeka ASSOS staff members! 🇮🇹
These are some of the most important members of our organisation, the people working behind the scenes to enable our team to compete on the world’s biggest stage; who embody the purpose of our team in changing lives through bicycles, in the true spirit of Ubuntu – I am because we are.
Each staff member embraced the task, announcing our riders in their own unique way. Good luck to our team, both on and off the bike!
