Welsh cycling has announced that it will launch its first professional team next year named 'We are Wales' (WAW).
It has been revealed that the pro cycling team, who will have Yann Dejan as director of performance, ultimately aim to compete in the Tour de France.
"It's very exciting to be able to finally announce the creation of the project which Yann and I first started three years ago," Sky Sports News quotes Eifion Weinzweig as saying.
"Our desire has always been to create something very special for the people of Wales, a team they can be proud to call their own. The ultimate dream is to one day support a Welsh rider through to the finish of the Tour de France, but that is a long way in the future."
The team of riders will be based at a camp in Northern France, while the headquarters will be located in Cardiff Bay.
