“We hereby apply for membership in MPCC and state that we will succumb and adhere to the internal rules and regulations as established by MPCC, explains Thomas Pupp, manager of the team. By becoming a member of MPCC we would like to express our engagement and support for a fair and clean sport. Especially as team which mainly consists of U23 riders we feel it is our obligation to guide young sportsmen in the world of sport, teach them a set of moral and ethical values and provide a helping hand in difficult periods of life and sport. An MPCC membership will help us to put down a marker and to show both riders and the public that we are serious about the “Code de Conduite” and that we intend to win in a fair way. At the same time we strive to support the struggle for a fair sport by contributing to a community of like-minded people.”
