Team MTN-Qhubeka

Team MTN-Qhubeka Qhubeka is an Nguni Zulu word meaning “to move forwards”, which is what Team MTN-Qhubeka is all about. The team is the first ever UCI Professional Continental team from the African continent. A wildcard entry into Milan-San Remo in 2013, the team made history with Gerald Ciolek’s thrilling victory. It also made history when Songezo Jim became the first black South African rider to race a WorldTour event.

Beyond competition, the team provides opportunities for African riders to excel in cycling while promoting Qhubeka, a South African non-profit organization that provides bicycles to rural children in return for work done to improve their communities. Qhubeka is a beneficiary of World Bicycle Relief.

The team rides Zipp wheels and SRAM components.
