Da Cruz returns to Française des Jeux

After racing for six years on the Française des Jeux team, Carlos Da Cruz will return to his former sponsor's organization, but this time not as a racer.

"The Française des Jeux team offered him the chance to become involved in managing its Foundation's projects," said a company statement according to AFP.

Da Cruz retired from the team at the end of 2007. He may take on a fuller role with the organization after he completes his studies in management and business. The foundation runs programs such as Vélo sans Frontières ("Cycling without Borders") which benefits African cycling and Chti-Ventoux which helps prisoners with re-integration.
