Team Nigeria men’s cyclists crashed out of the All Africa Games cycling race concluded Friday afternoon at the Conference Center, Congo Brazzaville.

The cyclists comprising Eyo Effiong, Ajibade Quadri, Innocent Emmanuel and Khalis Izebe finished the race but nowhere near medals range.

Team Nigeria cycling coach, Mohammed Bashir, who was obviously disappointed by the result turned his attention to the women cyclists for more medals.

“We did not win any medal at all in the men’s Team Time Trails. Our cyclists did not do well.

“We are only expecting to do better in the women’s category on Saturday and hopefully win medals,” Bashir told

The women cyclists won gold medal on Thursday in the Team Time Trail.

Cycling event will be concluded on Saturday September 12, 2015.
