Tour of Côte d’Ivoire 2015 " Tour de la Réconciliation"

 

The national tour was first organized in 1953, but it did not take place every year, and in 1998, it disappeared completely. The country was suffering an economic, social and political crisis, and cycling was not high on the list of priorities. In 2011, more than 3000 people had been killed during a political crisis; hence, Ivoirian Cycling Federation chaired by Mr. Yao Allah-Kouamé think that cycling could play a role in the reconciliation, as Sport is a factor that brings people together.

In 2012 was the re-launch of the tour under the name ((Tour de Côte d’Ivoire – Tour de la Réconciliation)). In 2014, the seven-day stage race joins Africa’s UCI Continental Circuit.

 

During the period 27 September until 2 October 2015, the Tour of Côte d’Ivoire "Tour de la Réconciliation" took place.

 

Tour de Cote d’Ivoire attracted about 56 cyclists from over nine countries: Algeria, Belgium, Cameroon, France, Rwanda, Morocco, Burkina Faso, Mali, Cote d'Ivoire, who run a 541km cut out into six stages throughout the country.
