Mr. Hollywood. Janvier, a former roommate of National Champion, Gasore Hategeka, has had a meteoric rise in the cycling world. Blessed with a snap sprint, which leaves his opponents in the dust, Janvier won the Prologue at the 2013 Tour of Rwanda. He also became the first Rwandan to podium at the Continental Championships in Egypt in 2013, taking 3rd in the U23 Road Race. Janvier is currently racing in South Africa with the MTN Qhubeka Feeder Team and will race this summer with Garneau Quebecor in Canada at the Tour of Alberta. Janvier’s success as a Team Rwanda cyclist has enabled him to build a house for his family, a family of 8!
