The 4-man cycling team which is made up of power “pedalist” Samuel Amin, Nuru Pardie, Henry Tetteh Djangmah and Tamale-based roller, Aminu Mohammed with Technical Director Shaaban Mohammed as the sole official will be pitching their strength against the likes of Namibia, South Africa, Zambia, Morocco, Egypt, and host nation Rwanda who placed 4th in last year’s edition.
This year’s championship will include the men and women team Time Trial over 40Km, the individual time trial (men & women) 33 Km and 17.2Km respectively and the Road Race-Men and Women Elite over 144km and 60 Km respectively.
Ghana’s 5-man contingent has become deficient of 4 more persons (2 cyclist and 2 officials) as a result of financial hiccups.
The Ghana Cycling Association is once again excessively grateful to Promasidor Ghana Limited for their timely assistance in this regard. The association believes this gesture has really cemented the re-branding exercise the Association is going through and we hope the bond between the two parties will yield enormous benefits.
Meanwhile, the Executive Committee of the Ghana Cycling Association, the National Sports Council and the entire stakeholders of the sport added their goodwill support to the team and hope they make Ghana proud in the country of thousand hills.
The team has since left for Kigali.
