Saunier Duval-Prodir has closed its best season since the team was established four years ago, with Manuele Mori winning the Japan Cup on Saturday.

The team, managed by former professional Mauro Gianetti, climbed to the sixth position in the UCI ProTour rankings after 29 victories grabbed by 15 different riders. This amounted for 11 victories more than in 2004, which is the second best year so far.

2007 included four stage wins, the maglia verde and team classification in the Giro d'Italia, plus several accomplishments in the Vuelta a España and other UCI ProTour races such as Paris-Nice, Tirreno-Adriatico, Eneco Tour and Vuelta al País Vasco, which have placed the yellow squad among the ten top cycling teams worldwide.
