CYCLING: RWANDA TOUR – Henok MULUEBERHAN receives an award

At the age of 23, young Eritrean Henok Mulluyberhan of Italy’s Green Project-Bardiani team won his first stage in the Tour of Rwanda, the 26th stage for his country.

For a week in Accra, Ghana, the newly titled African champion dominated the sprint through the streets of Musanze, Rwanda’s cycling capital. A very trimmed peloton arrived before the final line, after a very long stage of 199.5 kilometers, the longest of the 2023 edition. The first long climb in the land of a thousand hills began to hurt the riders’ legs and they were only sixteen years old. The first group that competed for the final win.

After a 185km long breakaway consisting of three riders, Rwandan’s Jean Bosco Nsingimana, South African Mark Pritzen (EF Education Nippo Development) and New Zealand’s James Foch (Bolton Equities) counted out the 12-minute maximum in the lead, the peloton decided to react to offer a great spectacle. Henok Mulueberhan was the lead actor in this very energetic finale, and it was he who took on his responsibilities. When he saw Ethan Vernon’s yellow jersey fall, he knew his time had come. “Winning in Rwanda was my childhood dream,” he said. “Sometimes I came close to winning but never had the chance to succeed like today. Now I want to think about the general classification, which was my second goal when I came to Rwanda. But first I wanted to win a stage because it will remain a magical moment.” in my career.”
