Ivan Basso had a below-par performance in the Giro del Trentino and now hopes to get his Giro campaign back on track when he lines up as Cannondale leader at the Giro del Trentino. He will be joined by Damiano Caruso and Moreno Moser, with the latter also using the race as a final hit-out before the Giro.

 

Today the Cannondale Pro Cycling team will be at the start of the first stage of the Tour de Romandie, 14th race of the UCI World Tour schedule. The Green Machine will line-up eight riders to attend the six stages and to aim for a bold performance. For some riders, the race will be also the staging point to finalize the preparation for the Giro d'Italia.
 
Ivan Basso, Moreno Moser and Damiano Caruso will face the race with the Giro del Trentino in their legs. Oscar Gatto returns to action after the cobbled Classics and a period of rest, and Paolo Longo Borghini. Matej Mohoric and Jean-Marc Marino have just finished the three Ardennes Classics. Colombian climber Josè Sarmiento completes the team.
 
"My eyes are fixed on the Giro d'Italia" said Basso "and every race is a step in this direction. Even if the results from Trentino are not what I expected, I'm not discouraged but just motivated to push hard the Tour de Romandie".
 
"Since my debut in Australia I'm just interested to do my best and to learn as much as possible" said Mohoric, the youngest rider in the World Tour circuit. "At Tour de Romandie my aim is the same. The race is suited for my characteristics, especially for the climbs, and could be an important experience for the future. Anyway, my first goal now is to support my teammates - I'll be happy if my efforts will be useful for the team ambitions. The second goal is the prologue and final time trial - I would like to perform at my best and see what will be".
 
Mario Scirea and Gilles Pauchard will be the two team directors in charge to lead the team.
