History[edit]

RTS Racing Team was established by president Liu of Corporation unofficially around 1990. Lin Qing Fa was appointed coach in 1992, and was later replaced by Lin Wen Chin. Over its first decade, RTS Racing Team became Mountain biking and Road racing champions in Taiwan, and represented Taiwan in many races abroad.

In 2002, RTS Racing Team was formally established, under the name Giant Asia Racing Team, by general manager Liu Yong Chang. Lin Wen Chin was appointed as the manager of the team, and it was officially registered as a Trade Team III, the first such team registered in Asia. Together with Giant, thirteen other financial sponsors helped cover the expenditure of the cycling team.
