Team MTN-Qhubeka have received one of five wild card entries into the 2015 Tour de France.
They will be the first African team to ride the European race.
Edvald Boasson Hagen, Steve Cummings, Theo Bos and Tyler Farrar are among the high-profile riders that have been selected to join the South African team for the 2015 season.
Team MTN-Qhubeka, a professional continental team, caught the eyes of the international cycling fraternity after last year securing an invite to the Vuelta a España – the final grand tour of the season.
The four other wild card entries for Le Tour include Bora-Argon 18, Cofidis, Bretagne-Séché Environment and Europcar.
The Tour de France will begin in the Dutch city of Utrecht on July 4 where Team MTN-Qhubeka will join 17 other teams.
