Deloitte and Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka
Cycling is about passion, commitment, and teamwork. It's about having the confidence to take on challenges and knowing that you have a team to rely on while striving for the best. Put it all together and it's easy to see why Deloitte is a proud sponsor of Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka. The team rides for Qhubeka, World Bicycle Relief's program in South Africa and is changing the lives of African school children through #BicyclesChangeLives. #BicyclesChangeLives is about mobilising people with bicycles for greater access to education, healthcare, and economic opportunity.
The team made history in the 102nd Tour de France in 2015 as the first African registered cycling team to compete in the race - finishing 5th out of 22 teams. Eritrean rider, Daniel Teklehaimanot, became the first African rider to wear the prestigious King of the Mountain jersey, and Steve Cummings won the 14th stage on Mandela Day.
Douglas Ryder, Team Principal, said, "We are incredibly excited to have Deloitte become one of our main sponsors; Deloitte's mission is to help their clients excel and has a purpose to make an impact that matters. This is a perfect match for our team as we continue to ride to promote and develop cycling on the African continent and to support our #BicyclesChangeLives campaign through the Qhubeka charity. The technology collaboration between Deloitte and Dimension Data will help our team excel by becoming more connected and operationally efficient as we strive to be the best that we can be in the next phase of this team's incredible journey."
