A few words from our President…..
2012 has been another eventful year for Team Rwanda, with further significant progress on a number of fronts.
The small, dedicated staff under coach Jonathan (Jock) Boyer ran 28 camps during the year averaging 15 riders per camp, with newcomers being tested at each camp. Three of these new cyclists participated in the 2012 Tour of Rwanda.
The Team raced in Morocco, Gabon, Eritrea, Brazil (the Tour do Rio) as well as the two UCI races in Rwanda, Kwita Izina and the Tour of Rwanda.
The Tour of Rwanda attracted teams from throughout Africa, Europe, the US and, for the first time, Canada. Over three million spectators watched the Tour which continues to play an important role, as the country’s largest sporting event, in unifying the nation.
