Garmin-Sharp will line up at the Giro d'Italia with a two-pronged attack on the overall. Ryder Hesjedal returns in a quest to take his second win in the race while Daniel Martin will start his first grand tour with a sole focus on the GC, and the team also has Tyler Farrar to target success in he sprint stages.

 


Team Garmin-Sharp today announced its much-anticipated 2014 roster. The squad is headlined by former Giro champion, Ryder Hesjedal, and Dan Martin.
 
Charly Wegelius, Director of Team Garmin-Sharp, said:

 

“We will go to the Giro with two GC leaders - Ryder Hesjedal and Dan Martin.  Ryder already has the experience of winning a Giro, while Dan will have his first full out effort at GC in a three–week race.  This will be an important experience for Dan, and he is in the very fortunate position of having Ryder by his side.  

 

"We will also bring Tyler Farrar, who hopes to build on a strong spring Classics season.  The rest of the team is a great blend of experience and youth, with neo pro Dylan Van Baarle having his first experience of a Grand Tour, which we hope will help lay the foundation for a bright future.”
 
Jonathan Vaughters, CEO of Slipstream Sports and Team Garmin-Sharp added:

 

"Charly Wegelius is an outstanding DS and has led us to one Giro victory. I'm sure his leadership and intelligence can help us achieve a high level of success yet again, and we have a strong team to be able to do that.

 

"We’re in the fortunate position to go into the Giro with two GC leaders – Ryder Hesjedal and Dan Martin. Ryder’s already won a Giro, so his experience will be of great benefit to Dan. Having two GC leaders gives us options throughout the 3 weeks of racing.

 

"Tyler has had a strong spring classics season so we are hoping to see him build on that at the Giro, and we’re very excited that Dylan Van Baarle, a great young talent, will race his first Grand Tour.

 

"In a race like the Giro any stage can be defining and it would be a mistake not to go in with that mentality. We will be looking at a variety of opportunities to shake up the race and go for stage wins. Every stage is important."
