Vive l’Afrique! On the road with the Kenyan national cycling team

Shot on location 2300m above the Rift Valley in Kenya, and on the hot streets of Rwanda’s capital Kigali, Baisikeli asks whether Africans will write the next chapter in the mythic story of road cycling. Following the Kenyan national cycling team through the glorious highs and strength-sapping lows of training and competition, you can’t help but wonder whether African athletes might one day redeem the sport of road racing, which has been rocked by a series of doping scandals.
