The season is well under way with the professional peloton spread across Spain, France, Italy, Portugal and Oman this week for a series of races.

That factor hasn’t stopped Garmin-Sharp from taking the relatively unusual step of organising their team training camp for mid-February. The American team rode last week’s Mallorca Challenge, with the team then using the Spanish island to fine tune their form ahead of further goals for the spring.

It’s a much changed team for 2014 with a number of established faces either leaving for pastures new or, in the cases of Christian Vande Velde and David Zabriskie, retiring.

The new – but already experienced guard – of Andrew Talansky, Dan Martin, Tom Slagter and Rohan Dennis will be expected to produce results this year, while the team have maintained an element of their core with David Millar, Tom Danielson, Tyler Farrar and Ryder Hesjedal all racing for the team.
