Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka

I'm very happy and proud to announce that in 2016 I'll join the Team World Tour Dimension Data for Qhubeka (ex MTN Qhubeka) in the role of Performance Coach. Last year this team was a professional team but at the end of November it obtained the World tour License. Being part of the World Tour means the team will automatically ride all three Grand Tours, along with the other races on the World Tour calendar.

About Qhubeka (From )

Qhubeka is an Nguni word that means “to carry on”, “to progress”, “to move forward”. 
Most of Africa’s rural population has no access to transport and people have to walk long distances to access opportunity, education, healthcare, shops and community services. Rural schoolchildren are particularly badly affected by lack of mobility. 
Qhubeka helps people move forward and progress by giving bicycles in return for work done to improve communities, the environment or academic results. Having a bicycle changes lives by increasing the distance people can travel, what they can carry, where they can go and how fast they can get there.
