The Kenyan Riders, a Kenyan cycling team, gather before an arch over the road at the entrance of Iten which bears a slogan welcoming visitors to the 'home of champions'. The team have been training along the road between Eldoret and Iten, a small town in the highlands on the edge of the Great Rift Valley at an altitude of 2400 metres, a perfect location for high altitude training. The team is managed by Singaporean Nicholas Leong (pictured) and trained by Australian Simon Blake.
