The Namibian National Cycling Team has been invited to compete at the biggest road cycling event in Africa, the Tropicale Amissa Bongo, also known as the Tour of Gabon from 13 to 19 January.
Two Tour de France teams (Europcar and Cofidis) will be competing at the event alongside some other big international teams (MTN and Caja Rujal) and eight other African National teams.

This is the first time ever the Namibian National team has received such a prestigious invite after impressing at the recent African Championships in Egypt where the team brought home three medals.
The success in Egypt and the trip to Gabon have been made possible courtesy of the financial support from Nedbank.
Five members of the Namibian National Cycling Team and the Physically Active Youth(PAY) development team recently took part in a ten-day training Camp in Omaruru under the direction of NCF president Mannie Heymans with guidance from Dan Craven.
The camp was used to fine tune fitness, and allowed the team to train together in preparation of the Tour where they will be relying on each other heavily. Cadence Nutrition played an important role, providing the energy products for the camp.
