Baisikeli, The Story of an African Cycling Team, follows the Kenyan National Cycling team as they train for the 2012 Tour of Rwanda. From the small town of Iten, 8,200ft above the Rift Valley in Kenya, to the raw energy of Kigali, Rwanda, Baisikeli is a story about the potential of African cycling and its ability to restore faith to this most beautiful, difficult and enigmatic of sports. Baisikeli, Swahili for bicycle, looks at the development of the team, their challenges within the cycling community, and their determination to not just learn the sport, but to succeed.

“More than just a cycling program, Baisikeli crosses socio-economic boundaries by showcasing the desire and perseverance of a developing country trying to gain a foothold in a European dominated sport as well as offering a compelling look at the power of the human spirit,” said Universal Sports Vice President of Programming Robert James. “As Universal Sports adds more original programming into our lineup, Baisikeli sets a high bar for the kinds of programming our viewers are sure to identify with.”
