Daniel Teklehaimanot Wins Polka Dot Jersey at Tour de France

9 July 2015

Eritrean rider Daniel Teklehaimanot today re-writes the history of cycling at the Tour de France once and for all. From being the first black African to compete at the Tour to the first African to wear a jersey as he takes the King of the Mountain title at the Stage 6.

Eritrean cyclist Daniel Teklehaimanot was first on the hilltop of the Côte de Canapville in the seventh stage of the Tour de France race today. That meant one more point for his king of the mountains polkadot jersey.

There is much enthusiasm in Eritrea about this.

Eritrean sports journalist Habtom Yohannis tells that when Eritrea was still an Italian colony, there was a race with Italian and Eritrean participants. An Eritrean won, making dictator Mussolini angry.
