Newcomer Travis McCabe will make his debut with the team at the Argentinian race, which takes place January 19-25. Oscar Clark, Robin Carpenter, Miguel Byron, Jon Hornbek and Rob Squire will join McCabe on the start line of the 2.1 race that draws a top international field.
“We'll really try for a couple stages but the overall is not something we're targeting,” said team director Thomas Craven. “We'll bring our usual aggressive racing style but also understand this race's timing and how it fits into other goals later in the season.”
Tinkoff-Saxo's Peter Sagan and Rafal Majka are scheduled to start the race, along with Etixx-QuickStep's Tom Boonen and Fernando Gaviria, Vincenzo Nibali (Astana) and Nairo Quintana (Movistar).
