The Tour du Rwanda organizers has officially presented the route of the 15th edition of the Tour du Rwanda which will take place from February 19 to 26, 2023.

The flagship event of African cycling promises to be as spectacular as ever with an unprecedented big start in the heart of the new Golf of Kigali to end a week later on the heights of the capital of Rwanda in front of the enclosure of Canal Olympia where the very difficult final arrival takes place for these last two years.

The entire program consists, as every year, of long climbs during most of the eight stages. The passages of the famous Wall of Kigali and Mount Kigali are obviously included in this exceptional program which will certainly make the Tour of Rwanda the most difficult event of the start of the 2023 cycling season.

Certain passages in the streets of Kigali will already be able to recall the circuit of the next world championship in 2025, the first in the history on the African continent.

Twenty teams have been selected representing the great cycling nations of the African continent but also of the world, including teams accustomed to the most prestigious events on the international calendar such as the Tour de France, the Giro d’Italia or La Vuelta a España: the World Tour team of Israel Start-Premier Tech, the French Total-Direct Energie, the Spanish pro team of Euskaltel–Euskadi and the Italian Green Project CSF Bardiani.

The future of cycling will also be represented with the presence of the youth teams of the Soudal-Quick-Step team which has dominated the world rankings for years and the EF Nippo team.

Rwanda will be represented by its national team but also by its UCI Continental team, Benediction Kitei Pro 2020.
