Biniam Girmay- promissing sprinter wins again
Biniam Girmay (NIPPO DELKO One Provence), the teammate of the Lithuanian rider Ramunas Navardauskas won already the second stage in the Gabonian tour La Tropicale Amissa Bongo and is wearing the points leader's jersey. The Eritrean sprinter from the French Pro Contintental team is only 19 years old!
Last year at the age of 18 (19 during the season), he won a stage in the Tour of Rwanda and a stage in the Gabonian tour. He finished 48th in the Paris-Roubaix Espoirs too in 2019.
The level at those races in Africa are with a correct level, many French pro teams participate at those season beginners and they are in trouble beating Eritreans. The GC is lead by Natnael Tesfatsion from Eritrean National Team by 1 second ahead of Jordan Levasseur (Natura4Ever - Roubaix Lille Métropole). Tomorrow is the last stage suitable for sprinters again, but those races are not very well controlled and you never know what will happen.
