Rouleur Conversations Podcast: Qhubeka-Assos with Doug Ryder, plus Rouleur's Miles and Ian

Africa's team fight on next season, Assos up their involvement, plus our own Miles' guide to the perfect Christmas gifts from the Rouleur store

The future of NTT, formerly MTN-Qhubeka, looked to be in doubt until team principal Doug Ryder announced Assos have stepped up their involvement to keep the team at the races in 2021.

Ryder tells Ian Parkinson how Africa’s Team will keep working on getting homegrown riders from the continent into the top tier of the sport, and the big change in personnel for next season. Qhubeka means “move forward” – an apt slogan in these challenging times.

Derek Bouchard-Hall, CEO of Assos, joins us to explain the renowned Swiss clothing company’s decision to stick with Ryder and the team, and put the Qhubeka charity's name front and centre of the project.

Our big birthday issue 100 has just gone to the printers and it’s fair to say we are overjoyed with the result. Miles Baker-Clarke takes you through what’s hot in the Rouleur shop in the run up to Christmas, while Ian Cleverly points out a few highlights from this extra special issue.

Plus news of upcoming competition prizes related to our 100 Memorable Moments feature. Get involved with the hashtag #rouleur100
