Huge crowds at the Tour du Rwanda

by CyclingTips

In the grand scheme of things, the UCI 2.2 Tour du Rwanda isn’t a particularly big race. But on stage 6 over the weekend, local fans in the Rwandan capital of Kigali turned out in impressive numbers to watch the riders battle the steep final ascent to the finish line.

That stage and the overall were won by Rwanda’s Valens Ndayisenga of the Dimension Data for Qhubeka Continental team, the 22-year-old having also won stage 2. Ndayisenga now has two Tour du Rwanda titles in his palmares.
