17-year-old Waweru had good start, leading the first lap before Maxime manged to overtake him in the last lap.

“It was a tough chase, I knew I would disappoint my fans so even when I fell I got up quickly and chased,” Van Pee stated.

“It was a good event. The most important is that we won with a big point margin and I think we shall defend it in the second leg in December,” team captain Van Pee stated.

Uganda won the first leg in beating traditional rival Kenya with a convincing bigger margin.
