Rwanda’s top cyclist Adrien Niyonshuti is confident of a top finish at the Tour of Ireland scheduled to run from August 21-24 in Dublin, Ireland.

The South African based cyclist has been under intensive training back at home in the hills of Ruhengeri, Kibungo and Byumba for the last three weeks and is confident he can pull off a top finish at the international event.

“I have been training well for the last three weeks, and though it will be my first competition out side Africa, my coach (Jonathan Boyer) has taken me through some good preparation especially from the physiological side,” said Niyonshuti.

The 29-year-old will ride for his MTN Energade team at the three-day event which is expected to attract over 100 international cyclists including seven time Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong.
