Development Rider Programme in South Africa

As part of the programme rider Nicholas Dlamini has signed his first pro contract. Nicholas was born in one of the largest townships in the Western Cape and joined the HotChillee Development Rider Programme its first year. In January 2015 he joined the feeder team for the South African based MTN-Qhubeka.
