Team Qhubeka ASSOS have made a very strong start to the 2021 road racing season; one which Head Sports Director Lars Michaelsen says: “has exceeded realistic expectations”. Team Qhubeka ASSOS (formerly NTT Pro Cycling) – Africa’s UCI WorldTour team – only secured its future in the final months of 2020 and as such, compared to many of our competitors, entered the new season rapidly assembling all of the critical parts to be fully operational, at the highest level, by the time that racing resumed in 2021. The team has competed at Étoile de Bessèges and Tour de la Provence, showing some strong early season form.
