November 7, 2012 — Eritrea won the Team Time Trial with a time of 51 minutes and 49 seconds, during the first event at the African Continental Championship (ACC) held in Burkina Faso.

The victorious Red Sea cycling team featured some of Eritrea's top riders, including Daniel Teklehaimanot, Frekalsi Debesai, Jani Tewolde and Natnael Berhane.

A total of sixteen African nations participated in today's competition, which covered four laps around Ouaga 2000 (42.4 miles), a district within the capital, Ouagadougou.

Second place went to Tunisia's cycling team, which finished with 51 minutes and 9 seconds, while longtime Eritrean cycling rivals, Algeria, finished third, with a time of 53 minutes and 32 seconds.

Following two consecutive victories in previous ACC held in Rwanda and Eritrea in 2010 and 2011, the Eritrean cycling team are seen as the clear favorites to win this year's competition.
