Pat McQuaid announced a few weeks ago that the ProTour might undergo globalisation, but the ProTour team Saunier Duval-Prodir may have beaten him to the punch. The team traveled to the Western African country of Mali as part of a humanitarian project, and while they were there, they participated in a 'race' with around twenty Malian cyclists.

The riders and their manager, Mauro Gianetti also planted trees as part of the "100 years for a million trees" project which is one of the many charitable endeavors that the team is engaged in.
