Wout Van Aert (Team Jumbo Visma) sprinted to the final stage victory of the Tour de France, on the Champs-Elysée in Paris. Tadej Pogacar (UAE Team Emirates) defended his title from last year and was crowned the overall race winner. Stage 21, the final stage, of the 2021 Tour de France was again a true spectacle for the sport of professional cycling as the peloton made its way to the most famous finish-line in sport, on the Champs-Elysée in Paris. For Team Qhubeka NextHash, the day held even greater significance as the team celebrated International Mandela Day at the Tour, as it has always done.
Team Qhubeka NextHash will once again celebrate global icon Nelson Mandela on 18 July at the Tour de France, and in doing so promote a message of peace and harmony across the world. Team Qhubeka NextHash has a deep connection with Mandela Day – the birth date of the former South African president – as it won its first-ever Tour de France stage on the day in 2015 with Steve Cummings’ famous victory in Mende. While our purpose in effecting positive change through bicycles truly shows that sport has the power to change the world, an ideal that Mandela espoused. Now appearing at the race.
