Biziyaremye wins stage 5 in Nyanza

Ndayisenga holds onto race lead

Joseph Biziyaremye (Rwanda Karisimbi) won the fifth stage of the Tour of Rwanda ahead the winners of the last two stages, Eritrean Dawit Haile (Eritrea) and Moroccan Salaheddin Mraouni (Maroc).

In 2011, he was the first Rwandan to win a stage of the Tour of Rwanda. He is now the only one of his country to win two stages. With intelligence, he waited until the last turn to produce his effort and surprise the other riders in the peloton.

The yellow jersey Valens Ndayisenga (Rwanda Karisimbi) was not endangered of losing any time during the 182.4-km stage, which was the longest in the history of the Tour of Rwanda.
