Theo Ngubane

Theophillus Ngubane or “Theo” grew up and lives in the Township of Kayamandi in Stellenbosch, South Africa. Theo first fell in love with bicycles and dirt at the BMX track that was built in the Township. Last year was his first time racing downhill and having a Downhill bike. In that short time Theo became the first ever black South African to race downhill at a World Championship.

But for Theo riding has nothing to do with the colour of your skin or where you are from, it's about that pure joy, that amazing feeling only a bicycle can bring and experiences, and bonds you have with others who feel the same way.
