The team formerly known as Saunier Duval-Prodir has changed one of its title sponsors and will next season be named Saunier Duval-Scott, the well-known American bicycle supplier has announced. Scott has been providing its carbon bikes to the Saunier Duval team since 2003. With this expanded sponsor role, the company plans to cooperate more actively with the team in order to improve its technologies.

"We've made progress together, as the athletes' valuable feedback is a key factor to the evolution of our products. We're happy we can develop our accessories further and support the young riders recruited for next season," said Scott Vice-President Pascal Ducrot. "We entirely trust Mauro Gianetti and his men, and we've done so since 2003, when he showed us his project."

Saunier Duval-Scott riders will be equipped with the Scott Addict road frame as the weapon of choice for the 2008 ProTour schedule. The team will continue to be managed by Mauro Gianetti and Joxean Fernández "Matxin". Next year, the Scott logo will be in a prominent position on the team's jersey, which can be seen in the picture above, featuring Leonardo Piepoli, José Ángel Gómez Marchante, Juanjo Cobo and Riccardo Riccò.
