I would like to find out who was the first African (excluding South Africa) to join a team and race abroad professionally. Also, who is the most succesful African pro of all time?
There are cycling hotbeds in all the continents (S. Amercia - Colombia, N. America - US, Asia - Japan getting into the swing of things et al), but Africa (except S. Af) is quiet.
I know Seko (Kenyan?) was on the RDM-Flanders books in 2002, but I don't think he's found a team for this season. There must be some.... so any info would be great.
