"We are not overlooking anything, and we are confident that Moser is a rider of class and he can return the results to prove it," said Amadio. “For the moment we are not going to change Moreno’s programme.”

Despite a strikingly obvious lack of consistency, Moreno Moser was called the next big hope of Italian cycling following his several promising performances recorded last season. It seems that a son of a very famous father has been quickly forgotten since spring months of 2014 produced new idols of Italian tifosi in likes of Diego Ulissi (Lampre-Merida) and Fabio Aru (Astana), but Cannondale manager Roberto Amadio remains full of hope that the 23-year old will live up to tremendous expectations.


The spirits were high after young Moreno Moser took a highly surprising victory in last year’s Strade Bianche and emerged as a first rider to negotiate the final ascent during the tough L’Alpe d”Huez stage in 100th edition of the Tour de France, but the 23-year old Italian was nowhere to be seen since then.


The 23-year old Cannondale rider failed to put on any solid performance so far this season, hampered by an illness during the Tirreno-Adriatico and riding an almost totally anonymous Giro d’Italia.


"Moreno is has not done as we all hoped at Tirreno-Adriatico, which he didn’t finish, and the Giro also has had its ups and downs,” Cannondale team manager Roberto Amadio told Tuttobiciweb.


"Before the Giro started Moreno said that he was good, but in the middle of the Giro he fell ill with a minor infection and it had to be treated with antibiotics, which can have a negative effect. The infection was highlighted by his performance during the following stage from Collecchio to Savona (which was won by Michael Rogers from a solo break)."


Whole Cannondale manager admits that Moser’s performances were so far away from team’s expectations, he still is full of hope that with necessary changes in race programme of the young Italian he will eventually find his legs and start to ride at demanded level.


"We are not overlooking anything, and we are confident that Moser is a rider of class and he can return the results to prove it," said Amadio. “For the moment we are not going to change Moreno’s programme.”


As a result of recently applied changes, Moser will tackle the Tour de Suisse from June 14, while his further race schedule is yet to be announced.
