Eritrea’s Meseb Debesay wins second stage of Tour of Rwanda

By CapitalEritrea,

Eritrea’s Mekseb Debesay won the second stage of the sixth edition of the Tour of Rwanda on the 96.4 km course from Kigali to Ngoma.  Rwanda’s Janvier Hadi grabbed the yellow jersey after winning yesterday’s prologue race and will keep it – as he finished a few seconds behind Eritrean Mekseb Debesay in today’s race.

This year’s Tour of Rwanda includes fourteen teams and more than 60 cyclists competing over a period of eight days in the heart of Africa.

Eritrean cyclists have been among the favorites from the beginning – quoting the Rwandan press it read, "Rwandan Cyclists will face stiff challenge from Africa’s top cyclists like Mouhssine Lahsaini from Morocco and Eritrea’s Mekseb Debesay and Eyob Metkel among others."

The Tour of Rwanda, which is organized by Rwanda Cycling Federation, was first held in 1988 before it became part of the UCI Africa Tour category 2.2 five years ago.

Last year’s edition was won by South Africa after Dylan Girdlestone while Rwanda’s Valens Ndayisenga won the most promising rider accolade following his 11th place finish.

    Eritrean Mekseb Debesay claims Stage 1 of Tour of Rwanda

    17 November 2014

    *Rwanda’s Hadi Janvier tops general classification

    17 November 2014

    Eritrean Mekseb Debesay arrived ahead of the rest to claim the first stage of Tour of Rwanda, with three more Eritreans following him closely as he crossed the finishing line in Ngoma district.

    The Eritrean who rides for Team Bike Aid finished ahead his Moroccan counterpart Mouhssine Lahsaini, who he is competing with for the UCI Africa Tour continental honours.

    Lahsaini found himself falling behind the chasing pack as Debesay set out to finish strong on the 96.4Km stage from Kigali to Ngoma.
    “I did not have a particular strategy but as we approached the finish line, I decided to sprint because everyone was sprinting towards the finish. My efforts paid off. I cannot explain how happy I am,” an elated Debesay said

    Rwanda’s Hadi Janvier remains ahead of the rest on general classification, retaining the yellow jersey for the second day in a row.

    The second stage of Tour of Rwanda 2014 will be on Tuesday as riders prepare the first mountainous challenge in the Northern Province

    Top 3 on General Classification

    1: Janvier Hadi (RWA) Team Rwanda Karisimbi 02h30’41’’

    2 : Valens Ndayinsenga (RWA) Team Rwanda Karisimbi 02h30’43’

    3: Jean-Bosco Nsengimana (RWA) Team Rwanda Karisimbi, 02h30’44’’

    Stage 2
    Tour of Rwanda will set off from Rwamagana heading to Musanze, a total of 151,5Km.

    Dawit Stage 3:Haile wins the stage,Ndayisenga Valens retains Yellow Jersey Ndayisenga retains Yellow Jersey

    19 November 2014

    Muhanga- It was a calamitous finish after a relatively good and fast start on the 3rd stage of Tour of Rwanda 2014 as more than five riders in the leading pack fell on a slippery road as they approached the finish line.

    Yellow Jersey Valens Ndayisenga was among those who fell within 200 metres to the finish line, spoiling his chances to win a second consecutive stage but Team Rwanda Karisimbi rider was given his full time, which ensured that he retained his yellow jersey.

    Also to fall was title contender Mekseb Debesay of Team Bike Aid-Ride for Help and Team Karisimbi’s Joseph Biziyaremye who was also in contention for a stage win.
    To benefit from the disastrous finish was Team Eritrea’s Dawit Haile who eased his way to the finish line to win his first stage of the tour from Musanze to Muhanga-a distance of 127.5Km.

    The Eritrean carefully avoided the pile up on a slippery road in Muhanga town to take advantage of the situation.

    Team Karisimbi’s Jean Bosco Nsengimana could have easily won the stage having led with his country mates towards the end only to be distracted as Ndayisenga and Biziyaremye failed to negotiate the last corner and ended up in a roadside trench.

    Unfazed, with his bike chain split, Ndayisenga limped to the finishing line but despite failing to win his second stage, he managed to retain the yellow jersey with 1m and 3 seconds ahead of his closest competitor Mekseb Debesay.
    Ndayisenga leads the general classification ahead of Jean Bosco Nsengimana and Biziyaremye while Mekseb is in 4th.

    “I was disappointed. I did not anticipate the corner, we were moving at a high speed. But again my spirits were lifted when people came and lifted me up. I am encouraged that we still have the yellow jersey,”

    “Hopefully tomorrow I will have recovered well to compete for Muhanga-Rubavu stage, even though I know it is the longest and most challenging,” Ndayisenga said.
    Mekseb Debesay on the hand also seemed to be in some pain but said that he was confident to recover for the 4th stage.

    Thursday’s stage will be from Muhanga, Southern Province, to the Western Province district of Rubavu, a distance of 126.4Km, through the winding corners of Rubavu district.

    Stage 3
