Since last year’s Cup was a friendly warm-up competition, this year’s event will kick-off with team competitions representing Australia, China, Colombia, France, Japan, Netherlands, Taiwan, Spain, Ukraine, and United States of America, all vying for the grand trophy, medals and cash prizes.
“Taiwan Cup plays an important role in promoting the nation’s natural scenic beauty and growing bicycle manufacturing industry.” said Trust Lin, Director of Taiwan Tourism Bureau, Los Angeles Office. “Taiwan’s love affair with cycling goes much deeper than competing at the high-profile annual Cup. The Taiwanese people have embraced this healthy pastime sport in their daily lives for years.”
Hopefully we'll have a chance to cover some of the same course as the competitors....at a much easier pace.
