Cape Town - Former track Olympic silver medalist and five-time world champion, Theo Bos, will ride in the colours of Team MTN-Qhubeka next season.

While racing for the Rabobank and Belkin Pro-Cycling Team outfits over the last four years, Bos has been able to take his professional win tally up to 35 race victories.

Most recently Bos won a stage in the World Tour event, Tour de Pologne, the overall GC victory at the World Ports classic and four stage wins in the crazy bunch sprints of Le Tour de Langkawi earlier in the year.

Team MTN-Qhubeka p/b Samsung is delighted to welcome the Dutchman to Africa's professional cycling Team.

"I am really excited to be joining Team MTN-Qhubeka. It is an amazing project that I can't wait to be a part of. The team race for a cause that is more than just winning races and that is Qhubeka, a social initiative where they aim to put children in Africa on bicycles. I really like this human element to the team. I hope I will be able to bring a fan base with me to the team that will bring new support to the Qhubeka initiative. When I win races I know that I will be able to tell the teams story and that is something that motivates me. 
"This team has a great culture, I want to win and we will work together to win, our success is the success of Africa. I am really motivated and I look forward to the challenges that lie ahead with my new team. I still have many goals I want to achieve in world cycling and I believe that Team MTN-Qhubeka is the right team for me to be able to do so," said Bos.
"Theo Bos is a great sprinter and a rider who has won races all over the world, his addition will add strength and depth to our sprint train in one day races and stage races. As a rider he wins consistently throughout the season which creates a positive feeling in a team and we look forward to him bringing this positive energy to Team MTN-Qhubeka. His top end speed and skills learnt from track cycling is something he is looking forward to assisting our young sprinters with and showing them the way to become future race winners," said team principal, Douglas Ryder.
