The African Continental Championships in Luxor Egypt February 14-19 2017 is the next major goal for team Rwanda.

In light of that we've begun preparing ourselves quite early...

These championships are a significant opportunity for Team Rwanda to secure large points in the UCI Africa Tour. This will go a long way towards dictating the athletes qualified to compete in the 2017 UCI World Championships this October, being held in Norway.

Rwanda will also be hosting the Continental Championships In 2018, another element making our performance in Egypt significant.

The numbers indicate that our team has the power to produce an extremely competitive TTT. Our weakness is familiarity with the event and a good understanding of the fundamental management of power stores of a team riding in unison at their limit.

Our objective is to perfect these elements and show just how fast we are come February.

And we are right on track...

As always, our training and racing is funded entirely by your donations. We will need to raise a significant amount of money to take the team to Egypt in February for the Continental Championships. If you are keen to help, please make a donation using the link below:
