Team Qhubeka Assos has announced the signings of Sander Armée and Mauro Schmid for the 2021 season.

The Belgian and the Swiss are the newest additions for the South African team currently known as NTT Pro Cycling. Armée joins the team from Lotto Soudal where he was since 2014, where he has shown his abilities as a general classification rider and a rouleur that will support the team's ambitions in the biggest stage races.

"I'm super-motivated to join Team Qhubeka Assos next year," he said. "Cycling is a passion for me and I feel the shared level of passion in the team, and with their staff. I’ve had some personal success in the past but that won't stop me from looking to improve even further; and so with the passion, knowledge, equipment and race mentality of Team Qhubeka ASSOS - I want to make this happen.

"I want to use my experience and give the best of myself to achieve all of the team's goals next year. It will also be nice to team up again with Victor Campenaerts, we were in the same team for two years and have also lived in the same village for a number of years too."

The 21-year-old Schmid takes a step up to the WorldTour after spending two years at the Continental level with Swiss Cycling Academy and Leopard Pro Cycling. The rider has finished in the second overall position at the 2018 Tour of Black Sea, he was 11th at the 2020 Tour of Luxembourg and finisg in the top-20 of the Czech Tour.

"I‘m looking incredibly forward to make the step to the WorldTour with Team Qhubeka Assos," the Swiss rider commented. "It was always a dream of me since I started bike racing about 10 years ago and this is absolutely a dream come true for me. I look forward to help my teammates so that we can achieve the goals that the team has set for itself.

"I am also very proud to represent the Qhubeka Charity which has a huge influence on people‘s lives. I can’t wait to find out more and meet the people directly involved to ensure that I use my talents on the bike to the best of my ability to also drive aware to such a great organisation."

The two riders are part of the 25 confirmed riders so far for the team ahead of the 2021 season. The formation will still confirm two members for the upcoming year.
