This is just brilliant - here is a trailer for the film "Rising from the Ashes", about a Rwandanan cycling team.

Today is day 1 of the Tour of Gabon, where Team Rwanda is flying in to compete. You can get behind them at the FB page HERE  if you want to follow them and send msgs of support :)

Inspirational. Love it, and all the best to them.

Cyclingtips had a good interview with some of the riders and members of the team: http://www.cyclingtips.com.au/2012/11/rwanda-cycling-in-circles/

If you like long form articles, The New Yorker has a great piece too: http://www.newyorker.com/reporting/2011/07/11/110711fa_fact_gourevitch

FYI Adelaide has quite a few people from Rwanda living here, maybe several dozen, maybe more? Not sure if they are following the cycling though!
