Trek Bicycles, which now sponsors World Cup-level cross country racers through the Trek / VW team, will partner with 23 Degrees Sports Management to sponsor a World Cup level gravity and cross country racing team for 2009.

"We're extremely excited to be part of Trek's ambitions for top level World Cup racing and results in 2009 onwards, and we're doubly excited to be returning to the race scene, one that has served our company well over the past 8 years," said 23 Degrees Founder and CEO Martin Whiteley.

23 Degrees has won previous World Cup titles through its teams: Global Racing and more recent Team G Cross Honda.

The new team plans to release further details, including a rider line-up, after they are confirmed.
