Eritrean Cyclist Natnael Berhane Seeks to Win Tour De France

By France 24,

Elected best African athlete of the year in 2013, Eritrean cyclist Natnael Berhane continued his winning streak by winning Tour of Gabon in January. Recruited by the French team Europcar, this young talent lives and trains in Vendée.

The Vendée is located 5,000 km from Asmara, the capital of his country, but yet it is in this french department that the Eritrean cyclist Natnael Berhane is housed. Since he was hired last year by the prestigious Team Europcar, he trains several hours a day on the roads of Vendée. Despite the rain, the good climber came from a mountainous country does not balk at the task. He has only one dream: to shine on the Grande Boucle.

"I know I have to work hard if I want to win the Tour de France," said the athlete to FRANCE 24.

In January, Natnael Berhane was the first African to win the Tour of Gabon, the most important race of the continent. The sports director of Europcar Bernaudeau said he was proud to have him in his team, in a sport that still has very few African cyclists.

 "Natnael must be a locomotive for tomorrow, there is much runners in Africa that can say 'if you want you can. Hopefully it will make a great career because it has many consequences. There will be plenty of emulation among the young riders in Africa. "

While living away from his family is sometimes difficult, the young champion, aged 23, is not complaining. On the contrary, he said: "I am very lucky to be a cyclist I love more my job, I became a professional, I'm happy and lucky."

  2. Unfortunately, if Natnael Berhane wants to win the Tour De France, he has to use drugs or cheat like just about every cyclist there. The world of professional cycling is filled with cheaters. I recommend people watch this insightful documentary about the professional cycling world.

  6. He doesn' have to and I am sure he wise not use. Some may get away with using it. It would not be easy for Eri riders to use and hide it

  8. it is doable. We Eritreans are very talented people if we get the opportunity. Imagine what would the people who are locked in national service camps for decades could do if they had that opportunity???

    The warning is just too weak and too much of a chance for such wicked elements. Just knock him off and we all move on to constructive discussions.

  14. Mr real Moron,
    It is just that you don't have the ability to sense it. Otherwise, those in the national service are making miracles more than anyone else. You just can't see it, because you are wearing a thick dark goggle. I recommend you to educate yourself by checking on some of them in youtube: the Semienawi Bahri, The Adikeyh-Foro roads, the dams, the agricultural fields, the electric infrastructures, you name it....If you can't see those, then you can't see anything but dark.
