Last Friday, Mallorcan racer Marga Fullana signed a contract to race for the next two years. She will race for Massi-Illes Balears with the support of equipment manufacturer Massi and the government of the Illes Balaers.
"It is not only a sports agreement, but it is something more," said Fullana.
The two-time World Champion (1997 & 1999) likened her new support to that of a family and expressed her hopefulness for the upcoming Olympic year. Fullana won a bronze medal in the Olympic mountain bike race in Sydney, Australia, in 2000. She was ranked 13th in the UCI World Rankings as of the end of 2007.
