The Duo, Eyob metkel and Joseph Areruya for the team dimension data for Qhubeka made an impressive counter attack hence over taking the race.

Upon reaching the finish line in Nyamirambo, Qhubeka Eyob Metkel of Team Dimension Data got the impressive victory of 1:58:55 and Joseph Areruya coming after him three seconds.

Eritrea’s Debretsion took the third placed and Rwanda prologue winner Nsengimana Jean Bosco Rwanda arrived in the fourth position.

Thousands of Rwandans gathered along the highways to cheer cyclists.

Today’s 86km stretch started from kayonza in eastern province through Rwamagana-musha –Kigali Parents-Kimironko-Kibagabaga-Kabuga via Nyarutarama-Kagugu-Gisozi genocide memorial sites-Kimisagara to the finishing line in Nyamirambo.
