TEAM Rwanda riders have arrived in Bertoua, Cameroun, where they are set to compete in this year's Grand Prix Chantal Biya.
The five-stage race starts Thursday and will run through October 20 across the West African country. The riders, including five Team Rwanda members, will race a total of 542.9 kilometres.
