Adrien

I received my first bike from my Uncle Emmanuel. My first race was the Tour of Rwanda, where I finished 6th.

I was recently offered a pro contract with MTN in South Africa. I was born in Eastern Province and lived in Kigali near my mother (my father recently passed away). Six of my brothers were killed in the genocide in 1994. I was the winner of the Tour of Rwanda this year. Due to my success in 2008, I was invited to a training camp in South Africa for two months before the Continental Championships in Morocco. I also raised and trained one of the Junior riders, Godfrey Gahemba, who tragically passed away in December.
