Stradalli - BIKE AID at the start of Tour du Cameroun

Saturday, Mar 12, 2016 in Pro Cycling

Flashback: two years ago, it was the first race that the new formed Procycling team could win. It was Dan Craven from Namibia who brought the yellow jersey home to the Saarland, when he won the general Classification of Tour de Cameroun.

And also Daniel Bichlmann won a stage by a sucessful brak-away. At the end of the same year, it was Mekseb Debesay (now Dimension Data /World Tour) who won the overall ranking of the UCI Africa Tour in the jersey of the team out of the Saarland.

Now, Stradalli - BIKE AID Procycling Team is again at the start of this race from 03/12/2016 to 03/20/2016, but with different goals. Meanwhile, the team has established and has a high reputation from the organizers and also in the peloton, especially in Africa. The goal now is to fight for another win of the GC with Jean Bosco Nsengimana from Rwanda. Also Amanuel Mengis from Eritrea can play a major role for the team and with Joschka Beck Stradalli-BIKE AID has good options for stage wins in the sprint.

The race leads about 8 stages through the western-african country and it sahould be the tropical heat that can make it very hard for our guys there, but also the mountains in Cameroun. We keep our fingers crossed and we will keep you updated on our website!

The roster:
Jean Bosco Nsengimana (RWA), Amanuel Mengis (ERI), Daniel Bichlmann (GER), Joschka Beck (GER), Patrick Lechner (GER)
