Rajiv Ruparelia, the team’s lead racer, showed steeliness, resolve and intent that he is in it to compete rather than add to the numbers of racers.
It took the agility of experienced racer Ronald Ssebuguzi to deny Rajiv a debut win. Clocking 10:04 minutes, Ssebuguzi got the better of Rajiv’s 10:44 minutes. In third place was Jonas Kasiime clocking 10:54 minutes.
