MTN-Qhubeka team principal Doug Ryder gives his reaction to becoming the first African-registered team to win a Tour de France stage after victory on the fourteenth stage for their British rider Stephen Cummings.

Speaking to Sportsworld’s Lee James, Doug described the win which coincided with Nelson Mandela day as “huge for our team, huge for the future of African cycling. What a day – Mandela Day – to win a stage for an African team – that can never be topped I think!”
