Daniel Teklehaimanot, first African Tour de France king of the mountains


This is a 23 June 2015 Eritrean TV video about the Eritrean cyclists Merhawi Kudus and Daniel Teklehaimanot now riding in the Tour de France in a South African team.

Zdenek Stybar from the Czech republic today in Le Havre won the sixth stage of the Tour de France cycling race. Not often before a Czech cyclist had managed this.

There happened more. Tony Martin from Germany, in the same team as Stybar, and in the overall leader’s yellow jersey, fell not far from the finish line and is injured. UPDATE: Tony Martin will not start tomorrow.

A first in this stage: Daniel Teklehaimanot from Eritrea finished first on three hilltops today. That meant he now has the right to wear the king of the mountains white and red polkadot shirt. Daniel Teklehaimanot is the first Eritrean cyclist ever, and the first African cyclist ever, to wear this shirt.
