The team that was formerly known as Saunier Duval-Prodir is now Saunier Duval-Scott. The team will continue to be managed by Mauro Gianetti and Joxean Fernández “Matxin” for the 2008 season.
Scott Bicycles has supported the Saunier Duval team since its inception in 2003.
“We’ve made progress together, as the athletes´ valuable feedback is a key factor to the evolution of our,” Scott Vice-President Pascal Ducrot said. “We’re happy we can develop our accessories and support the young riders recruited for next season. We entirely trust Gianetti and his men.”
Team riders will race the 790g Scott Addict frame in 2008.
“This is a team that has shown integrity in a time of turmoil, and maintained a top position in the Pro Tour, finishing 6th last season,” Scott USA Marketing and PR Director Adrian Montgomery said. “We feel that as the sport evolves, the team will prove to be on the forefront of the new standards by which Pro Tour teams can endure, and even find themselves in a leadership position whereas sportsmanship is concerned.”
