An African team will be featured for the first time ever in this year’s Tour de France: South Africa’s MTN-Qhubeka received a wild card today from race organizers.

“OK, we had [Kenya-born Briton] Chris Froome win the 2013 Tour de France, [South African] Daryl Impey wore the yellow jersey, but to have a whole team in the Tour de France … for Africa and South Africa, it’s going to be huge,” MTN General Manager Brian Smith told VeloNews.
