Marga Fullana, 2000 world cross-country champion and Olympic silver medalist, has signed a deal to ride for the Spanish team Orbea in 2002. The team’s first training camp will begin February 18, near San Sebastian, Spain.
Fullana, who rode for Specialized in 2001, had a difficult year, competiting in only four of the eight World Cup races, and skipping the world championships. Still, she won three of those four World Cups, and is the No. 8 rider in the UCI cross-country rankings.
