Asian Cup added to 2008 calendar
Lanzhou, China will host an ITU Continental Cup on July 20, just a few weeks prior to the opening of the Beijing Olympic Games.
This will be the first time an ITU-sanctioned race will take place in Lanzhou, which is located in the Gansu province. With a population of close to 3 million people, it is one of the largest cities in western China. As the geographical center of the country, Lanzhou is considered as the gateway to the Silk Road.
