It has been exciting to follow the Tour of Rwanda, as I have been writing about Team Rwanda since January 2009. I now have other African cyclist to follow. I look forward to the first black rider in the Tour de France and following the 2012 Olympics in London, England, Congratulation to all the riders who participated in this tour. Needless to say, Team Eritrea has been most impressive. My heart is with the Rwandan cyclist and the results that Adrien Niyonshuti has achieved over many races. After all, I’ve “known” him much longer. Plus, Rwanda has a unique history as noted by today’s ride. Stay tuned for the results. Thanks! –jim
