Team Dimension Data rebrands to NTT Pro Cycling
The new kit will grace the WorldTour and the sport’s biggest races throughout 2020. It’s a brand that riders will wear with immense pride, while at the same time continuing to showcase the impact that bicycles have in changing lives through NTT Pro Cycling’s work with Qhubeka, which has recently distributed its 100,000th bike. The team for 2020 features nine exciting new riders, to supplement the current pool of talent as the team looks to race with a goal of establishing itself among the top ten teams in the world. The 2020 line-up includes: Carlos Barbero (ESP), Samuele Battistella (ITA), Edvald Boasson Hagen (NOR), Victor Campenaerts (BEL), Stefan de Bod (RSA), Nicholas Dlamini (RSA), Benjamin Dyball (AUS), Enrico Gasparotto (ITA), Amanuel Gebreighzabier (ERI), Ryan Gibbons (RSA), Michael Gogl (AUT), Reinardt Janse van Rensburg (RSA), Ben King (USA), Roman Kreuziger (CZE), Gino Mäder (CHE), Louis Meintjes (RSA), Giacomo Nizzolo (ITA), Ben O’Connor (AUS), Matteo Sobrero (ITA), Andreas Stokbro (DNK), Dylan Sunderland (AUS), Jay Thomson (RSA), Rasmus Tiller (NOR), Michael Valgren (DNK), Max Walscheid (DEU) and Danilo Wyss (CHE). Each of the riders were selected with the help of a technology solution that was co-innovated by NTT and NTT Pro Cycling. The solution leverages advanced data analytics that helps the team to select riders, prepare its race calendar, and assign the right riders to the right races. Technology also helps the team monitor the health and wellness of its riders through a mobile application, and business-focused applications such as asset tracking, vehicle tracking and monitoring, help the team to function as a well-organized global business. Together, we’ve created the most technically advanced team in the WorldTour. “Thanks to all of our partners, and in particular our title sponsor NTT Ltd. We strive to be the benchmark within the sport through being a performance-driven, technology-enabled team that is underpinned by our unique purpose-led approach in support of the Qhubeka charity,” said Doug Ryder, Team Principal, NTT Pro Cycling. “Our commitment to changing lives together with Qhubeka remains stronger than ever and we’ll be looking to do so with even greater enthusiasm in 2020. Together with our staff, riders, and valued partners this core belief remains a foundation of our organization. Our team’s story now continues into the next phase, which will see us use our established platform to aim higher and to shoot further. We truly are a team that was born in Africa but created for the world.”
