Tour de Timor bike race

The 2012 Olympics are now a fading memory, but the sporting spirit lives on in Timor-Leste where more than 300 people recently competed in a gruelling bike race that promotes peace and development.

The Tour de Timor took riders throughout the island nation and, for the first time ever, into the territory of West Timor which is part of Indonesia.

We hear more in this feature from Daniela Traldi at the UN Integrated Mission in the country (UNMIT), which supported the Tour de Timor.
