TEAM Rwanda riders have arrived in Bertoua, Cameroun, where they are set to compete in this year’s Grand Prix Chantal Biya.

The five-stage race starts Thursday and will run through October 20 across the West African country. The riders, including five Team Rwanda members, will race a total of 542.9 kilometres.

 

Chantal Biya GP remains one of the few races on the continent where Rwandan cyclists have always struggled, having only won a stage once during the 2016 edition – through Jean-Bosco Nsengimana.

 

Former Olympian and Team Rwanda legend Nathan Byukusenge is in charge of the team in Cameroun.

 

Roster: Jean-Claude Nzafashwanayo, Didier Munyaneza, Eric Manizabayo, Patrick Byukusenge and Jean-Damascene Ruberwa.
