This is a book about Rwanda. It’s a book about cycling. But it’s not, in the end, a book about Rwandan cycling.
Well, it is. Tim Lewis gives us the story of Adrien Niyonshuti’s attempts to qualify for the 2012 Olympics under the tutelage of American cycling legend Jock Boyer. Adrien and his teammates are desperate to put Rwanda on the world map for something other than the 1994 genocide.
