Team Type 1's Kiel Reijnen padded his lead in the Tour of Rwanda by triumphing for the third time in a row on Monday afternoon, in the half stage between Rwamagana and Kicukiru district in Kigali. Two times longer than in the morning (86.5km) and slightly hillier, the course wasn't sufficient to cause a difference between the leaders until the final ascent to the finish line.

Reijnen beat two MTN Qhubeka riders, South African Dylan Girdlestone and Rwandan Adrian Niyonshuti by two seconds. The latest expected to capture his first victory but eased with a consolation prize after having faced a broken spoke in the ultimate kilometers.

Niyonshuti said "we will see tomorrow if the yellow jersey is a climber". The third stage, from Kigali to Gisenyi, on the Congolese border, is 151.3 kilometer long with six mountain primes and 2,545m of difference in altitude. Facing a good climber like Niyonshuti who is now second overall at 16 seconds, Reijnen, the American now based in Boulder, Colorado, will have to show his aptitude for mountains.
