Luthando Kaka of Cape Town is set to make history when he becomes the first black South African to ride for a European continental road cycling team, according to South African News site Independant Online. The 22 year-old, who is currently riding for the South African based Acisis professional men's cycling team, will join the Danish based Glud and Marstrand Horsens team at the end of the month.

Life Cycling Academy's chief Glyn Broomburg recommended Kaka for the Danish team after his strong showing at the Western Province Cycling Championships, where he won the Under 23 championships.

"Luthando was identified as a rider with the potential to make it on to the pro-cycling circuit in Europe," said Broomberg. "Being chosen for a continental team is an achievement for Luthando and the LCA."
