THE SUPPORT SA TALENT™ PROJECT was spearheaded in 2017 by PROTOUCH – #1 Continental Team in Africa – to recognise South African Road Cycling talent and create a platform upon which, to build funding opportunities for top performing Athletes.
In partnership with Streamline Brands and DEL FORNO, the SUPPORT SA TALENT PROJECT includes:
The DEL FORNO NATIONAL ROAD CYCLING SERIES – which tracks and ranks over 1 000 athletes, across 20 road cycling events annually – and, recognises and awards talent [across 14 categories] at the annual Awards Event, hosted by Phil Liggett;
Our DEL FORNO VIRTUAL RACING SERIES – launched during Covid-19 Lockdown, the Series which has over 260 registered South African riders, who have participated in 17-weeks of competition, using our own registered event on the Zwift Platform – this will commence again in Winter 2021;
Our newly-launched SUPPORT SA TALENT MARKETPLACE – where cycling enthusiasts can access preferentially-priced products (10% off site-wide) when they use the PROTOUCH coupon code at check out and, 10 – 15% rebates are paid into the Phil Liggett Foundation to Support SA Talent.
We have a range of new SUPPORT SA TALENT initiatives planned for 2021 and beyond, including the introduction of the new DEL FORNO PRO RACING LEAGUE – an exciting new format of TEAM RACING and a broadcast rights property.
“With only two South African riders on the start list of the 2020 Tour de France and South Africa having only just qualified for just three invitation for the 2021 Tokyo Olympics – investing in this dream could not have come at a more opportune time in South African and African Cycling”
