Tom Danielson's fifth place overall at the Tour de Langkawi marked a successful race debut for the new Discovery Channel Pro Cycling Team. Danielson finished 3'01 behind winner Ryan Cox (Barloworld) after notching up top 10 performances in the race's two key stages, the stage 4 time trial and stage 8 to Genting Highlands.
"This was a very good race for our team to start off the new season," said Discovery Channel assistant sports manager Laurenzo Lapage. "We came here knowing this event would serve as a way to build our base for the early season races. Tom put forth his best performance possible and looks to be ready for a solid season."
