The Cycling News reports:
King Liu, the founder of Giant Manufacturing Ltd. and advisor to Taiwan's president is quoted in the article as saying:
We’ll run the event on a bigger scale on November 5, 2011. The government of Taiwan and the cycling industry here are very supportive. We want to make Taiwan a cycling paradise.
The article goes on to erroneously report that 2011 will be "Taiwan's hundredth anniversary", which is ridiculous and impossible. 2011 will be be the hundredth anniversary of the Republic of China, which began administrating on Taiwan in 1945 and retreated to Taiwan in 1949. Taiwan has been in its present location for millenia. Get used to more of this garbage as ROC cheerleaders seek to promote an unpopular political agenda.
