Cycling fever in the air
Private Property is looking forward to following this year’s The Tour de France which gets underway on Saturday, 2nd July and ends on the 24th July.
Le Grande Boucle, which is back for its 103rd edition, attracted an impressive 15 million spectators last year and promises to be an exciting affair.
The Grand Depart will kick off on the historic backdrop of the region of Normandy, beginning at the foot of Mont Saint-Michel and traveling through Utah Beach, Sainte Mère Église and Cherbourg. The competitive race will cover around 3519 kilometres for the duration of the 21 stage course.
The Tour’s African Connection
Representing Africa in Tour de France and setting a massive milestone for African cycling, is Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka, who will be competing again this year after a successful premiere 12 months ago.
The African riders are raising awareness across the globe for the Qhubeka charity and are heading back to Tour de France this year with the goal of putting 5000 African children on bicycles through their #BicyclesChangeLives campaign. To find out more about this awesome initiative, visit the Qhubeka website here.
The team has a well-rounded squad competing this year, with 6 of the 13 riders coming from Africa itself. The African riders are Eritrean Daniel Teklehaimanot, the most famous one among them, who will be accompanied by fellow countryman Natnael Berhane, reigning South African road race champion Jaco Venter, Reinhardt Janse van Rensburg and Jacques Janse van Rensburg, who both have been part of the team that competed in the 2015 Tour de France, as well as Algerian Youcef Reguigui.
Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka is determined to accelerate the progression of cycling in Africa and there'’s no doubt their participation in the tour will help this.
