Official announcement ends months of speculation

After months of speculation, Garmin-Sharp and the Cannondale have confirmed that the two teams will merge for the 2015 season. Cannondale will become the WorldTour team’s title sponsor and bicycle supplier, with Slipstream Sports becoming the managerial body behind the team.

Garmin, who have been a main title sponsor at WorldTour level since 2008, will remain as a key sponsor of the new-look team.

"Slipstream Sports and Cannondale share key philosophies of a focus on innovation, developing the next generation of champions and a commitment to ethical sport," said Jonathan Vaughters, CEO of Slipstream Sports. "We are happy to work with another company, that, like Garmin, so closely shares our goals. We will be adding some great talent to an already outstanding roster and we believe the team will build on past successes and will produce very exciting racing in 2015. We look forward to what we can achieve together, both on and off the road."
