Team Trek - Marco Polo has won the very first race in its new existence. Chinese Fuyu Li took victory in the first stage of the Jelajah Malaysia.
It is a great start for the Chinese team as well as the 29 year-old, who last year raced under the direction of Johan Bruyneel at Discovery Channel. Li is qualified to race the Olympic Road Race for China, and has started his preparations off well.
Trek - Marco Polo will defend Li's leader's jersey until stage six when the famous climb to Genting highlands is on the menu, hoping that sprinter Sergey Kudentsov can win some stages in the process.
