Lill in lead after stage 3
Following the stage 1 victory of the young Eritrean Merhawi Kudus, the Africans have continue to have success in the Tour of Rwanda on stages 2 and 3.
In the second road stage, another UCI Continental Center rider Amanuel Meron followed his teammate's exploit by taking out a rainy stage from Kigali. Meron won the sprint in the 44.1km morning stage to Muhanga.
Race leader Shaun Davel (South Africa) gave up his yellow jersey to prologue winner Remi Pelletier Roy (Quebecor-Garneau) on that stage, but in the afternoon, Davel's teammate Darren Lill carried the torch, winning the 74.6km route from Muhange to Huye with enough margin to take over the race lead.
Lill maintained his hold on the yellow jersey on today's fourth stage, which was won by Bruno Langlois (Team Quebecor Garneau).
The Tour of Rwanda continues through November 25.
