November 21/13 12:25 pm - Boivin Returns as Cannondale Announces 2014 Rider Roster


Posted by Editor on 11/21/13
 

Cannondale Pro Cycling is proud to announce its team for 2014, promising to make for an incredible year of racing coming off of the team's successful inaugural season. The official roster will continue to develop a stable of young, talented international riders with a flair for winning and boasts 27 riders including three recent signings, four neo-professional riders, and twenty returning riders from the 2013 squad. Though it'll be difficult to top the 2013 season of 35 stage victories and a Green Jersey win at the Tour de France, Cannondale Pro Cycling is looking forward to a successful second year.

Experienced Italian riders Marco Marcato and Oscar Gatto will help lead the team throughout the Classics season and in the Grand Tours. A skilled, all-round rider, 29-year-old Marcato raced for the World Tour team Vacansoleil-DCM in 2012. His strong character will add depth to the team during the Classics and his experience as a domestique will allow him to work with and support team star Peter Sagan. The 28 year old Gatto was captain of his previous team, Fantini Vini, and has nine professional wins including a stage of the Giro d'Italia in 2011. The skilled rider will both support Sagan during the Classics and take the lead in additional races. Another promising new addition to the talented group is New Zealander George Bennett. The 23-year-old climber took the silver medal in the New Zealand road championship in 2013 and joins Cannondale Pro Cycling from World Tour team RadioShack Leopard Trek.

Cannondale Pro Cycling has also signed four promising young guns (as previously announced in August): former Junior World champion and current U23 World Champion Matej Mohoric (Slovenia), and three very talented Italians - Davide Villella, Alberto Bettiol and Davide Formolo.

The 20 riders continuing with the team who led Cannondale Pro Cycling to a successful start during the 2013 season are:

Peter Sagan (Slovakia)
Ivan Basso (Italy)
Moreno Moser (Italy)
Elia Viviani (Italy)
Damiano Caruso (Italy)
Ted King (USA)
Maciej Bodnar (Poland)
Guillaume Boivin (Canada)
Alessandro De Marchi (Italy)
Michel Koch (Germany)
Kristijan Koren (Slovenia)
Matthias Krizek (Austria)
Paolo Longo Borghini (Italy)
Alan Marangoni (Italy)
Daniele Ratto (Italy)
Fabio Sabatini (Italy)
Juraj Sagan (Slovakia)
Cristiano Salerno (Italy)
Josè Cayetano Sarmiento (Colombia)
Cameron Wurf (Australia)
