This video is pretty cool, yes they overhype the colour card a bit, but regardless of ethnicity it is great to see someone from an embattled background working hard and finding success like this! Way to go Theo!

Specialized proudly supports, a South African social development program that provides sport and recreational activities to children, offering a safe place to play and grow, establishing values of accountability and responsibility, teaching goal setting, and instilling in children the ability to dream and go out and achieve their goals.

Here’s the story of Theo Ngubane, a young rider who became the first black South African to compete at the UCI Downhill World Championships. Theo is supported by the program. Specialized South Africa, Christoph Sauser, and founder Songo Fipaza are inspired by Theo’s ongoing journey.
