Cannondale-Garmin Pro Cycling have announced their full roster for the 2015 season. Consisting of 27 riders from 14 different countries, the team is a result of the joining in forces at Garmin-Sharp and Cannondale.
The majority of the roster is built around the existing elite at Slipstream with Ryder Hesjedal, Dan Martin, Andrew Talansky and Tom Danielson in the team.
Ted King, Kristjian Koren, Matej Mohoric, Moreno Moser, Alan Marangoni and Davide Formolo have moved across from Cannondale.
“I’m very excited about our 2015 team. We began as a small group with the mission of developing young riders and we have stayed true to that mission year after year, even as we have grown. 2015 is our youngest group of athletes yet, and it’s also young in that it’s a new team, and we have joined forces with Cannondale,” said Jonathan Vaughters, CEO, Slipstream Sports and Cannondale-Garmin Pro Cycling, in a team press release.
“That gives us huge opportunities. What you can expect to see is an extremely talented group of young riders who will benefit greatly from the leadership and guidance of more experienced guys like Langeveld, Martin, Hesjedal and Talansky. This is a team that will come into racing with a lot of enthusiasm and spirit, and will rely on teamwork, tactics, perseverance and creativity to give great performances.”
