    Yes! Thumbs up for Daniel Teklehaimanot; and thumbs up for Eritrea. May this victory be the first of many more for you personally and for many more Eritrean youth.
    You brought us a breeze of fresh air amidst all of the negative news we have been getting regarding our youth.

    God bless you and us all.

    Thank you

    Brother Daniel T/h, wonderful and positive news for a change. You are the pride
    not only for our Eritrea but also for our black Africa. Go on and keep breaking new records
    and show the white men that we too can compete at a high level of their sports and not only at running.

    I urge the esteemed website of Assenna to post an important article written by the British newspaper the Guardian linked below:

    Here is brief quote:

    “It has been a long journey for the Eritrean. In 2010, he started catching the attention of European teams when he came first in the African Championship road race, won the individual and team time trials, and came first overall in the Tour of Rwanda. But Teklehaimanot’s entry to World Tour cycling was blighted by recurring visa problems, which sabotaged his chances to compete at the highest level with his team at the time, Orica-GreenEdge.

    “There are so many African riders – from Eritrea, South Africa and Rwanda – but it’s not easy to become a part of the big teams. We have to work hard, so I’m thankful for MTN-Qhubeka,” he explained.

    Kudus said he felt the same. “It’s not easy when you come from Africa. There should be more invitations, and more opportunity. Especially for places like Rwanda, where riders are becoming better and better. But we need more opportunities – it’s more difficult to get to Europe for us.””
