    Theo Ngubane - An inspiring success story!

    Stuff like this makes my day. I knock Specialized a lot but good for them for making this happen!

    Especially nice to see it happen in South Africa.

    Mountain biker Theo Ngubane makes history

    The racism barrier is the one that sticks out most to me in this story. For this to happen in South Africa is truly poignant.
