What an incredible end to a perfect debut Tour de France for Team MTN-Qhubeka p/b Samsung. Edvald Boasson Hagen sprinted to a fine 4th place on the Champs Elysees for our African team on today’s 21st and final stage. Andre Greipel (Lotto-Soudal) won the final stage while Chris Froome (Team Sky) won the Grande Boucle overall. As the riders set off for Paris earlier today, it would be an incredible day of reflecting back on what was a dream 3 weeks for our African team. From the moment Daniel Teklehaimanot made history by getting the 102nd Tour de France underway in the Eritrean national jersey,Read More →

The 19th stage of the Tour de France would be the toughest day of racing yet. Vincenzo Nibali (Astana) would secure the stage win ahead of Nairo Quintana (Movistar) with race leader, Chris Froome (Team Sky) finishing 3rd. Although the stage was only a short 138km, it would be toughest day of racing in the Tour de France this year. Starting from kilometer zero with a cat 1 climb, the peloton exploded during those first 15km of uphill. Merhawi Kudus was one of the first attackers on the climb and Daniel Teklehaimanot and Steve Cummings were also very active on the steep gradients. By theRead More →
