Trek-Marco Polo will be presented by South African chrome mining company DCM Chrome for this week's Giro del Capo series of races. The squad will also include two South African riders – Jacques Janse van Rensburg and Jaco Venter – in its squad for the race

Giro del Capo is a series of four one day, International Cycling Union (UCI) ranked events in South Africa. The series gets underway later today in South Africa's Wellington.

"Four one day races offer four chances to win," said team manager Gudo Kramer. "So there are great opportunities for the young guys to get to know each other and get the experience of international racing on the side of a fantastic captain on the road, like Leon van Bon."

Kramer hopes the team will be a force at this year's series, with van Rensburg having finished third at last year's event.

Trek-Marco Polo for Giro del Capo: Leon van Bon (Ned), Jacques Janse van Rensburg (RSA), Jaco Venter (RSA), Loh Sea Keong (MAS), Eric van de Meent (NED), James Spragg (GBR).
