We need to avoid pretension, trying to be someone else, and looking down on others, to take yourself too seriously and show off. We need to respect professionalism and avoid disrespecting the profession. Others are gossiping, jealousy, instead of fighting them, following the negative values for personal gains. I believe everybody, including me, should avoid these bad traits.

Eritrea’s top rider, a 23-year-old named Natnael Berhane, has already come close to making history. Although the Tour de France has seen several Algerian, Moroccan, and white South African riders, and counts Chris Froome, a Kenyan-born, South Africa-raised Brit, as its defending champion, no black African rider has ever competed in cycling’s premier event.
Berhane—a member of the Paris-based Team Europcar, and an alumnus of the same Vendée-U feeder squad that Uwizeyimana now rides for—has excelled,winning the 2013 Presidential Cycling Tour of Turkey and the 2014 La Tropicale Amissa Bongo in Gabon. Although he was not named to Europcar’s nine-man 2014 Tour de France roster, chances are high that he will make the squad in coming years.
