THE Ombudsman Office in conjunction with the Rwanda Cycling Federation will organise a one-day cycling competition on December 8 aimed at fighting corruption.
According to the cycling federation Permanent Secretary Emmanuel Murenzi, the event will cost Rwf5.5 million courtesy of the Office of the Ombudsman.
The competition is expected to attract up to 50 riders across the country in both the men and women categories, and the riders will cover a total of 90km (men), while the women will cover 45km.
It will be the last tournament of the year and it comes just a fortnight after the conclusion of the UCI rated Tour du Rwanda.
"It is good for the riders to compete in as many competitions as possible because it helps them as far as raising their level of competitiveness is concerned," Murenzi said.
Local clubs expected to take part in the race include; Benediction Club, Rapide, Satellite, Les Amis Sportifs, Fly Club, Cycling Club for All, Kiramuruzi Cycling team, Cine Elmay and Abahizi.
Murenzi confirmed that each team will have six riders but one club can enter two teams.
