In the Women’s ITT, heroines Mosana Debesay and Wehazzit Kidane had a dominant performance running away with Gold and Silver medals respectively.

Congo Brazzaville is located south West of Eritrea but because of lack of direct flights, our riders had to endure first travelling 3 hours North to Cairo and after a 6 hours stop over, boarding a connection flight heading 5 hours North East to Dubai.
