Areruya or Mugisha in pole position I'd say.

If they go down the sprinter route Galdoune impressed me in Hongrie and he can't have failed to impress the team too, but a Rwandan or Eritrean would seem more likely than a Moroccan (even if it's a fairly Italian one).
Mugisha's #rwkom jaunt was impressive; but it was "only" about going into the break and hoovering up the points.
Areruya's performance is much more promising, especially on the back of last year's second place. He's now confirmed what he can do, even if he ended up in fourth place this time.

There are also the Eritreans and Ethiopians that had been invited to the team's end-2015 "X-Factor camp" (but didn't get visas for it); I trust that the team will have kept an eye on those.

But finally, *cough* *na Dan Craven, anyone? :D
He is an African, his family have lived there for I-don't-know-how-many generations. And he's been on the team this year already.
