MTN-Qhubeka p/b Samsung took on the Ronde van Vlaanderen this year. It was a magical day out on the bike, with crazy fans and historic climbs on route. Matt Brammeier made it into the break for our African team and even won his weight in beer out on the route. This is the perspective of the Tour of Flanders from our team..
For the first time in the team’s history, MTN-Qhubeka p/b Samsung will start the Paris-Roubaix when the race gets underway tomorrow. The 253km World Tour race will see 200km on tarred roads, the rest will all be on the famous French cobblestones. The ‘Hell of the North’ and the ‘Queen of the classics’ is one of the most iconic spectacles in world sport and it is fantastic that Africa will have a team in this years edition of the event. The mystical forest of Arenberg and the feared Carrefour de l’Arbre sound like they could be places in a children’s story book. Tomorrow MTN-Qhubeka p/b Samsung.
