The President of the Confederation of African Cycling was recently re-elected at the helm of the institution. This was during the institution’s Congress held in Louxor, Egypt. In office since 2005, Egypt’s Mohammed Wazih Azzam was unanimously re-elected for another term of office by all 30 countries represented. Morocco’s Mohammed Belmabit was also re-elected by acclamation as Africa’s representative at the International Cycling Union.
Mohammed Wazih Azzam hopes to take African cycling to a different level by making it competitive through the organisation of training courses for athletes and coaches and by following up already existing competitions on the Continent.
