  2. As a boy growing up, Samuel Mugisha dreamed of being a part of the Rwandan national cycling team, Team Rwanda, as he believed it would be a way to help make money for his family. What he discovered was something else entirely. In a country trying to get over the trauma of a genocide, Team Rwanda represents a lot more than sport.

  4. “Rising from Ashes” is a feature length documentary about two worlds colliding when cycling legend Jock Boyer moves to Rwanda, Africa to help a group of struggling genocide survivors pursue their dream of a national team.

    “Cycling is an excruciating sport—a rider’s power is only as great as his capacity to endure pain—and it is often remarked that the best cyclists experience their physical agonies as a relief from private torments. The bike gives suffering a purpose.”
    – The New Yorker on Team Rwanda
    “As a seven-year-old, Adrien miraculously survived the slaughter (genocide) and is now the No.1 mountain biker on the biggest cycling team in Africa. He will be, without doubt, the most extraordinary athlete at the 2012 Olympic Games.”
    – Sports Illustrated
    “In London, Adrien Niyonshuti looks likely to rub shoulders with many other big names both in and out of the world of cycling. But the reality is that few, if any, will have had a more remarkable journey to get there.”
    – The Evening Standard London

Team Rwanda was founded by a group of friends in 2006 after watching some amazing raw talent compete at the first Wooden Bike Classic. That was the beginning of Team Rwanda Cycling.

Today we field over 25 cyclists in all levels and disciplines of cycling. These young men and women are role models and ambassadors for their country. Rwanda has become a cycling nation in just eight short years. We work in collaboration with the Rwandan Cycling Federation (FERWACY) and the Ministry of Sport and Culture (MINISPOC).
