We are proud to announce our partnership with Sierra Leone’s premiere road race for 2021.
For the first time in the Tour de Lunsar’s history, the 2021 edition will be a multi-day stage race. Starting in the country’s capital, Freetown, on April 16th. The race will make its way inland, with each stage finishing in Lunsar, the central hub for the race ad hotbed of cycling activity.
Organised by the Lunsar Cycling team, there will be jerseys awarded for the Women’s race, Men’s General Classification, the Junior race, and the Sprint competition.
Stephen Moon, SiS CEO:
“Sponsoring Tour de Lunsar is a landmark step for SiS, and well outside of our traditional sponsorship model. We’re passionate about making cycling more accessible and understand that our involvement with Sierra Leone’s flagship race is a first step towards a better-developed cycling infrastructure and economy within this incredible nation, with far-reaching economic, social and health benefits. It was important to us to put the power in the hands of Sierra Leoneans, supporting them to deliver the best bike race possible.”
Abdul Karim Kamara, founder and CEO of the race:
“After a year where we had to cancel the Tour entirely, we are delighted to now be working with Science in Sport to ensure the future of our race and to help build cycling in Sierra Leone. Cycling is not just the sport we love, it is a vital mode of transport, and one that we believe can transform the lives of our fellow Sierra Leoneans. Being able to take the race around the country helps us spread that message.”
The Science in Sport Tour de Lunsar is scheduled for 16-18 April 2021, with two one-day races for women and junior men on 15 April 2021.
