AS THE 2015 Tour de France heads towards its third week, MTN-Qhubeka Team Principal Douglas Ryder made the boldest prediction of the event so far.

I believe there is a future African Tour de France winner in [Eritrean] Merhawi Kudus. He is the youngest rider in the Tour de France this year, at just 21, and has the potential to be one of the best stage race riders in the world.”

While the sports world focuses on Chris Froome, still wearing the yellow jacket at the head of the field at the end of Stage 12, the more significant developments for the future may be happening further back in the peloton.
