Kenyan Riders is the official national team of Kenya, with 15 professional cyclists and 10 support staff, including 3 coaches, a masseur and a cook. We have been a full fledge cycling team since 2009.
Our permanent training camp is located in Iten, in the Great Rift Valley of Kenya, where the cyclists mix with the best endurance champions in the world every day.
In the summer of 2012, the team will go to France for training and racing.
Kenyan Riders has participated in several races in Africa and Europe; among them the l’Etape du Tour, Tour of Rwanda, and the Criterium du Luxembourg.
Kenyan Riders aim to participate to the Tour de France by 2016, as the very first Black African team. By then, we will ride in the colors of a sponsor, and will be racing all over the world, on all the continents.
Kenyan Riders has been funded by personal investments for 5 years. It started as a project, but now our team infrastructure is more promising than ever, and we are looking for a partner for a great human and sporting adventure.
