Team MTN Qhubeka: An African Bicycle Dream Episode 1

12 April 2013

Team MTN Qhubeka are the first Pro Continental Cycling Team from Africa – this is their story. From South Africa to the rest of the world, the team have made their mark on the sport. Watch the first episode of An African Bicycle Dream here.

And this video is the sequel.

Today, the Tour De France organisers have said that Team MTN Qhubeka has been invited to participate in the race, as the first African team ever.

The Tour De France will start this year on the fourth of July in Utrecht city in the Netherlands.

One should hope that in Utrecht or in France, these cyclists won’t have the bad luck of their South African colleague Evan van der Spuy, shown in this video.

In Utrecht or in France, there is not much chance of this happening with an antelope. However, I am not that sure about dogs.

One should also hope that in Utrecht or in France, there won’t be hunters who don’t know the difference between cyclists and hares.

This video shows a report on a woman cyclist shot by a hunter like that.
