Eritrean Riders Friends started this petition to Ambassador Embassy of Switzerland in Khartoum and

Petition: Give equal visa opportunities to Eritrean Riders   To the Swiss Authorities,   As in all aspects, also in Cycling sport, the conditions and opportunities of the African riders are not the same as their colleagues from other continents, mainly from Europe.   The easiest thing in Europe can be impossible in Africa !!!   The World Cycling Center (WCC) in Aigle, Switzerland, is a great school for riders from countries where cycling is not developped enough to train and form their high performance riders.    Many of the riders who were trained in the WCC came from African Continent and we can find the great majority of them in Professional Team.   Eritrean riders are recognized by cycling experts as riders of great potential and qualities and they have been succeeded in the last years.   However, visas have been denied by Swiss Authorities in the last times.   With this Petition, we ask for equal opportunities for Eritrean Riders, giving them the needed visas to have the possibility to join the World Cycling Center in Aigle, Switzerland.
