A new documentary has been made about Jeanne d’Arc Girubuntu who is the only woman on Rwanda’s national cycling team, based at the Africa Rising Cycling Centre (ARCC).

Last year, 20 year-old Girubuntu became the first black African woman to compete at the World Championships in Richmond, USA, and last month she finished second in the African Continental Championships Individual Time Trial in Morocco.

Team Rwanda pays her about $1,200 a year, and this money allows her to support her parents and four siblings allowing her to focus all her efforts on cycling and her aim to turn professional.

This is a trailer for the documentary showing how she started cycling, her dreams and struggles.
