Discovery support Chinese cycling development


Chinese riders added to the Discovery squad

The Discovery Channel Pro Cycling Team announced today a partnership with the China-based Marco Polo Cycling Team. The partnership is part of an ongoing recruitment and development initiative to seek new talent that will provide Team Discovery with reach beyond their traditional sources, mainly the US and Europe.

Discovery’s newly signed Chinese rider, Fuyu Li, comes to the Discovery squad from the Marco Polo Cycling Team. In addition, the partnership will provide the Chinese Continental squad with financial support and a much sought after affiliation with a Pro Tour team. In 2007, the MPCT team will race under the name Discovery Channel Marco Polo Team.

Sports Director Johan Bruyneel told RCUK: “This relationship is very exciting and will provide our team with new opportunities to recruit riders that I think will be successful in the future.”
