Team Qhubeka is proud to once again celebrate Mandela Day – 18 July – in keeping with the global celebration of an icon of humanity, the former President of South Africa, Nelson Mandela.
In his honour, Team Qhubeka will be hosting a special 67 minute Zwift ride, which will also be an opportunity for the Team Qhubeka Community and wider fanbase, to celebrate together via video link.
The session will feature contributions from Team Principal Douglas Ryder, rider Nicholas Dlamini and manager of our Continental team – Kevin Campbell.
Mandela Day, which was formally declared by the United Nations in 2009, is always significant period for our team and closely intertwined in our history. Former rider Stephen Cummings famously won a stage of the Tour de France on this day in 2015 in our first appearance at the event, as we annually celebrate embracing the colour orange – a universal symbol of peace.
For those not wishing to ride virtually, the session will be open to all via a video call, and we look forward to sharing this special occasion with you.
