Incredibly, the Tour de France is about to start and we're thrilled to make our seventh appearance at the event, now as Team Qhubeka NextHash.
Together with welcoming NextHash as a partner; we revealed a spectacular new kit designed by ASSOS which also saw iconic luxury fashion brand Burberry make a historic step into cycling in partnering with us.
As stage one kicks off, 2021 will be an exceptionally proud moment for our team, with Nic Dlamini being the first black South African to start the Tour de France. Nic's story is a powerful one, an exemplary testament to the power that bicycles have in changing lives and one that speaks to the very core of what we are about as a team.
Our Hand-Up campaign will go live tomorrow, where we'll aim to raise funds for 108 Qhubeka bikes.
We hope you'll get involved!
Enjoy the racing this weekend, we can't wait to do you all proud.
