Podcasts, Articles and Interbike - Team Africa Rising Is Big News!
On August 30th Team Africa Rising officially announced the formation of the first all African women's professional team. During the past month the excitement of this epic "first" in the sport of cycling has spread throughout the cycling world. The amazing people at Voxwomen have signed us up for a series of diary pieces across 2017 and there have been numerous articles written about the new team! Alongside this there have been some awesome podcast interviews on Cycling Podcast Féminin and Warren Cycling Podcast. Take a few minutes to check out these podcasts for the most up to date information on the progress of the team.
We had two very successful trade shows this past month with Eurobike in Germany and Interbike in Las Vegas in the US. Many of the Team Rwanda current sponsors have now committed to Team Africa Rising Women including Reynold's Cycling, LOOK and Sidi Shoes. Our next step is to finalise the title team sponsor and bike sponsor and discussions on these are ongoing. We will then complete the registration of the team and hopefully early next year you'll see our riders at the start line of some of the best races in the US, including the Tour of the Gila and Redlands Classic.
