Rwanda Cycling Federation's new president Samson Ndayishimiye has pledged to take the sport to the next level after members of the local cycling governing body (Ferwacy) elected him to lead the federation in the next two years. The elections were held during the federation's extraordinary assembly on Sunday to fill the positions left vacant following a series of resignations by some top officials over the past two months. Ndayishimiye said: “My first step is to open up a fully equipped office and the next would be to increase the number of clubs in the country. This will be included in the next action plan.” ALSO READ: Ndayishimiye succeeds Murenzi as new Ferwacy president “We have a good terrain for developing cycling, especially mountain biking.
