Henok Mulubrhan has won the eighth and final stage in the Tour of Rwanda . He turned out to be the strongest on the final climb towards Kigali. The final standings went

We went into the final stage in Rwanda with the top five of the standings within four seconds of each other. Mulubrhan led the dance after seven days, but Walter Calzoni started the final ride in the same time as the leader. William Junior Lecerf of the Quick Step training team was one second.

In the final stage, the Wall of Kigali had to be conquered three times on a local circuit. An interesting wall, which will be used as an executioner at the World Cycling Championships in Rwanda in 2025. The longer ascent of the Rebero also had to be done three times. The day ended with a 5.2 kilometer climb at 6.5 percent average to the line in Kigali.

Logically, it all came down to the final climb, but the classification riders couldn't get rid of each other on that col. It became a sprint to the line, in which Mulubrhan showed that he was clearly the fastest and most explosive. In his leader's jersey he put his hands in the air and was also the overall victory for him.

After eight days of fierce battles, the Tour of Rwanda 2023 ended this Sunday. During this 8th stage, drawn around Kigali (77km), the riders had plenty to express themselves with seven climbs listed, including a final climb of 5.2km at 6.5%. And it was Henok Mulubrhan (Green Project-Bardiani CSF-Faizanè) who won at the top. The Eritrean raised his arms in front of Joseph Blackmore (Great Britain) and Victor de La Parte (TotalEnergies). Before this 8th stage, the general classification was very tight, since only 4 seconds separated the first 5. But thanks to his victory, Mulubrhan managed to keep his leader's jersey and won the overall.
