Team Rwanda was founded in 2006 by a group of cycling industry legends, Tom Ritchey and Jonathan “Jock” Boyer, and friends after discovering some fantastic raw talent racing at the first Wooden Bike Classic. That was the beginning of Team Rwanda Cycling.
Today, the team fields over 60 cyclists in all levels and disciplines of cycling throughout eight clubs and the national team. These young men and women are role models and ambassadors for Rwanda. Rwanda has become a cycling nation in just nine short years.
The Team Africa Rising mission has been to not only recruit and train top level cyclists who compete at the highest levels of cycling, but also to teach and train the next generation of coaches, mechanics, nutritionists, etc. for the program by modeling the necessary infrastructure of running a first-world cycling program. Ultimately, the goal is to expand this proven program into other countries and develop competitive cycling throughout the African continent - for both men and women. To reflect this grand mission of expanding a holistic approach to cycling into other countries, the team changed it’s official name to Team Africa Rising (TAR) in 2015. Most importantly, Africa Rising Cycling is now working to grow cycling throughout the continent.
