The course for the 9th edition of this major race in Africa has been finalised.
The 9th edition of the Tour of Rwanda (UCI 2.2) is now official, the riders will compete on the beautiful roads of the Land of a Thousand Hills from 12th to 19th November 2017.
After the first victory of a Rwandan rider at a UCI recognised event in Europe this week by Joseph Areruya (Team Dimension Data Continental) at the Giro d'Italia U23, the Tour du Rwanda appears more than ever before as a launching pad for many Rwandan and African riders.
Like every year, the new edition will offer new locations and always many difficult climbs and descents in the famous mountains of Rwanda - with a 14,000 m vertical drop in some places! You can find attached the seven stages and the list of our partners.
