Members of the Eritrean National Cycling Team didn’t have to wander far from the 2015 Road World Championships course to feel right at home. Four cyclists from the team, along with members of the delegation accompanying the team, were welcomed by about 30 members of the Eritrean Student Association for a meet and greet at the University Student Commons on Tuesday afternoon.

“Eritrea is a small country to begin with, so we’re all a really close community. Our adviser [Ghidewon Abay-Asmerom, Ph.D.] is one of the main people organizing team Eritrea’s stay in Richmond,” said Iman Nur, president of the ESA and a senior information systems major. “We just thought it would be an awesome opportunity to have the cyclists come in.” Continue reading Eritrean Student Group Welcomes Country’s Cycling Team to Campus

#Richmond2015: Merhawi Shone, Amanuel Barred Over UCI Rules Confusion

Triumphs and disappointments for the Eritrean National Team at the 2015 UCI Road World Championship in Richmond, USA.

By Alula Abraha,

At yesterday’s UCI World Road Championship, it was reported that Eritrean rider Merhawi Kudus finished in 21st place at the Men’s U23 ITT World Championship, only 1Min 42Sec shy off the winning time. Merhawi performed rather slow in the first quarter of the sector but the young athlete performance increased speed thereafter in each of the last three sectors quite sustainably in relative to the fellow athletes.

Frankly speaking, 21st place at a World ITT Championship is a huge result for an athlete who hasn’t even managed a podium place at a national ITT championship. This race against time saw over 50 athletes go off the starting ramp, where 8 of them were from Africa. Two each from Rwandan, South African, and Algeria while one each from Morocco and Eritrea took part in it. Merhawi finished head over shoulder above everyone of them.
