S8 Ep165: Kilometre 0 – NTT SOS

The Cycling Podcast

Africa's premier cycling team has been around in various guises since 2007. Initially, as continental team MTN, which became pro-continental team MTN-Qhubeka, before joining the WorldTour as Dimension Data and now NTT. Gerald Ciolek took their first win at Milan Sanremo back in 2013. Shortly afterwards, the team was riding and winning stages at the Tour de France. They made a splash in 2015 when Daniel Teklehaimanot took the polkadot jersey on stage six, and again on stage 14 where Steve Cummings won at Mende. The addition of riders like Edvald Boasson Hagen and Mark Cavendish to the roster made them a formidable force in the sprints and they took a total of six Tour de France stages between 2016 and 2017. However, things have since taken a downturn for the team. Marred by illness and injury, the wins began to dissipate and on the eve of the Giro d'Italia, NTT announced that they would not be renewing their sponsorship. What does the future hold for them?
