Presented in the USA. West Hollywood, Los Angeles. Builded around Peter Sagan as a young aggressive team with the experience of Ivan Basso who doesn't seem resigned to the road captain role though...
Cannondale lost Liquigas and Vincenzo Nibali, lost a big part of its identity in my opinion and that presentation shows it quite well. Why in the hell do you go to Los Angeles to launch an Italian team? because of the main sponsor, I see. I see.
Fortunately Paolo Slongo is still there: I know him from many Liquigas Camp and trust on him, as a coach and as a man. Fortunately Moreno Moser remained: I trust on him as a rider and as a young serious man. I never end to tell how impressed he made me in that interview. And you saw him racing. Fortunately there is Maciej Bodnar: one of my favourite rider ever and very strong in last season. There is Elia Viviani, who doesn't need an introduction. They target... everything. They are right because that's a compact team that can face all challenges. Many hard workers - like Marangoni, Da Dalto and Dall'Antonia - and a new entry you should remember from the last Giro: Alessandro De Marchi.
I'm looking forward to see them racing.
