Dimension Data, has launched a health and wellness mobile app at the annual training camp of Africa’s professional cycling team, Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka. The app, Pila, which means ‘to live’ in Nguni, was custom designed to Team Dimension Data’s specific requirements.

The app tracks the daily physical and mental performance of the team’s 39 World Tour and Continental riders located in 10 countries.
