Domenico Pozzovivo continues to make history for NTT Pro Cycling at the 103rd Giro d’Italia, concluding the opening week of the race in 4th place on the general classification. His personal story is one of inspiration, as just a year ago his cycling career looked to be over after a serious crash while training near his home.
After a remarkable journey just to get back on his bike, fast-forward to this year’s Tour de France where he was set to compete strongly but a heavy crash in the opening week saw him fight all the way through to the first rest day before eventually having to abandon. He is the epitome of our team at the moment – on and off the bike. His overall position is not one that we’ve been in before at a grand tour but one we’d planned for as part of our journey and it's great to see it paying dividends for now.
Our fighting effort at the Giro which is captivating our fans around the world comes at the same time as the international release of our team documentary – PEAK. It’s been incredibly well-received: charting the amazing journey of our team and its humble beginnings to the very top level of the sport.
Despite cycling’s constant changing environment, the purpose of our team has been unwavering: our commitment to changing lives in Africa through our partnership with the Qhubeka Charity. The simple bicycle has brought our team many historic successes which are all underscored by our team’s personal contribution to the distribution of over 30 000 bicycles in communities across South Africa. It is a must-watch. I hope you love our story. It's one that highlights the spirit within our team, our shared determination on all fronts to be successful, and our continued commitment to Qhubeka.
