Qhubeka Assos continue to build their roster for 2021, and on Monday announced the latest two signings to the South African WorldTour squad: experienced Belgian Sander Armée from Lotto Soudal and 21-year-old Mauro Schmid, who joins from the UCI Continental-level Leopard Pro Cycling team, having previously been with the Swiss Cycling Academy squad.

Armée is a former teammate of current NTT Pro Cycling member Victor Campenaerts, who will continue with the team next season as it becomes Qhubeka Assos following the loss of NTT as main sponsor. The 34-year-old will join following seven seasons at Lotto Soudal, with whom he won a stage at the 2017 Vuelta a España and a stage at this year's Tour Poitou-Charentes.
