Former British Cycling coach Shane Sutton has reportedly signed a contract with the Chinese Cycling Association.
The Daily Mail reports that Sutton signed the deal on Friday and will be part of the Chinese contingent that heads to the British National Cycling Centre in Manchester early next month for the Track Cycling World Cup. Sutton has reportedly been invited to guide China’s track cyclists through to the Tokyo Olympics in 2020.
