What didn’t we all read about Mekseb in the past 12 months: Overall winner of stage races, winner oft he UCI Africa Tour 2014, Africa’s Cyclist oft he year 2014 and yes, also man oft he race at the Bayern – Rundfahrt 2015, he was voted for. 

That Mekseb has to offer a couple of strenghts, many of us were already knowing. But now he has been selected to the Pro-World Championships the 27th september 2015 in Richmond, Virginia (USA) by the Eritrean federation. Well, he already took part at the Worlds in 2014, but now there is one thing special: he has been selected as the only one rider form Eritrea in the Elite race. So he has been preferred instead of other great riders like Daniel Teklehaimanot, who already beared the polka dot jersey during this year’s Tour de France, or Natnael Berhane who is currently riding the Vuelta Espana.

We cross all fingers for Mekseb and we are sure we will follow the race in front of the TV!
