Cycling: Africans reaching new heights

South African-based cycling outfit Team Dimension Data is making history at the ongoing Tour de Romandie in Switzerland. For the first time at the top level of the sport, they are fielding a squad featuring only African riders. Four Eritreans, a Rwandan, two South Africans and an Algerian make up their team for the event. Doug Ryder, Team Principal, spoke to BBC Newsday.
