Namibia, the 2018 Tour de Windhoek is here! With 5 stages spread over three days. This 400 km road race stands as the pinnacle of the Namibian cycling calendar. Last year’s event saw the best of the best local riders pitted not only against each other, but also against international teams competing for the coveted title of champions of Windhoek.
