UNCLIPPED: DOUG RYDER
Welcome to the first episode of ‘Unclipped’ for 2021 – the unique Team Qhubeka ASSOS podcast bringing you key insights from inside Africa’s UCI WorldTour team.
The fantastic journey the team has taken to establish itself at the highest level of the sport is well known, and it featured some incredible highs; but in late 2020 the dream looked all but over.
With no major title partner secured for 2021, riders & staff were encouraged to look for employment elsewhere should opportunities to secure their own futures survived.
Miracles seemingly do happen though as founder and principal Douglas Ryder not only saved the team in securing its survival into 2021, but also his dream from extinction.
This episode with Doug reflects on unprecedented times, the team’s fighting spirit and change of course in 2021; as well as exploring the team’s unique offering to the world as a purpose-led sporting organisation seeking to make significant impact in the world.
