The first Chinese riders to get contracts into a ProTour team are 21 year-old Kin San Wu from Hong Kong and 22 year-old Gang Xu. Both riders have signed with Italian squad Lampre-Fondital, beginning their careers within the ProTour peloton this July.

Wu, winner of the 2005 Tour of South China Sea, and Xu are reported to be the best Chinese riders in the Continental peloton. They will also line-up for their country at the Olympic Games in Beijing in 2008.
