Mitchelton-Scott get news naming sponsor

Mitchelton Scott will carry the name Manuela Fundacion for the rest of the 2020 season

Spanish charity Manuela Fundacion has been named as the new main sponsor of Australian cycling team Mitchelton-Scott for the remainder of the season and into 2021.

"After an unsettling and uncertain period, particularly in recent months, we are thrilled to have the support of Mr Francisco Huertas and the Manuela Fundacion to ensure our future in 2021 and beyond," team owner Gerry Ryan said.

According to its website, the Manuela Fundacion is "the culmination of a macro-social project with a diverse purpose of solidarity in favour of the needy, sports and the performing arts".

The team, which performs at World Tour level, has been active since 2011 under the names GreenEdge, Orica-GreenEdge, Orica-Bike Exchange, Orica-Scott and Mitchelton-Scott.

Mitchelton-Scott, led by British brothers Adam and Simon Yates, cut its riders' wages amid the COVID-19 crisis after the elite season was suspended mid-March.

The season is set to resume on August. 1.
