Debesay claims stage 6 in Rwanda

After an initial victory last Monday in Ngoma, the Eritrean Mekseb Debesay (Bike Aid-Ride For Help) won stage 6 at the Kigali regional stadium in front of tens of thousands of spectators on Saturday. He waited for the last 500 metres to make his attack in the final climb to the finish. Already the best climber of the Tour of Rwanda 2014, Debesay confirmed his talent yet again.

Valens Ndiyasenga (Rwanda Karisimbi) retained his yellow jersey before the final stage on Sunday in Kigali.
