Video: Team MTN Qhubeka: An African Bicycle Dream (Episode 2)

Posted on the 18 September 2013 by Kungfujedi @Kungfujedi
Way back in April of this year I posted an excellent video of the new Team MTN Qhubeka pro cycling squad which is now in its first year on the Pro Continental circuit. The team, which is the first from Africa, has had a solid year of competition.
A few days back, episode 2 of the online web series entitled An African Bicycle Dream was released on YouTube. In that video, which you'll find below, the spotlight turns to the talented young riders from Africa who are working to form the nucleus of this team moving forward. The hope is that these riders will be able to graduate up to one of the Grand Tours in the next year or two, but for now they are riding for the very future of the organization At the moment, Team MTN Qhubeka hasn't secured longterm sponsorship just yet. They're hoping to do so soon so they can continue racing. Find out more about those motivations in the short documentary below.
