Cannondale will make a rare apperance in Asia when they send a combination of domestiques and young talents to the Tour of Taiwan. Guillaume Boivin will target success in the sprints, Davide Formolo hopes to excel on the climbs, and veterans Cameron Wurf and Ted King will provide valuable experience for the youngsters.

 

While Europe gears up for the upcoming Classics season, Cannondale Pro Cycling will focus its attention on Asia and attend the Tour de Taiwan for the first time. Beginning March 9 through March 13, five members of the Green Machine will face five stages of race action.

 

A multi-cultural and well-selected group of men have been assembled for this race by team director Alberto Volpi. American Ted King, Canadian Guillaume Boivin, Australian Cameron Wurf, Italian Davide Formolo, and Jean-Marc Marino from France (the last member of Cannondale Pro Cycling to debut in 2014) all have plans to aim high at the Tour de Taiwan.

 

Going into the Tour de Taiwan, King and Wurf are the two experienced domestiques. They have similar goals for this race – carry their teammates as well as they can for the best possible outcome.

 

“I’m happy to support my team from the inside. Bringing the captains to victory means a lot for me. I’d love to have some opportunity to shine, and think this race is one of those moments. Opportunities like this don’t come often,” said King. “I’ve had a light season thus far having only ridden the Dubai Tour. Since then, I’ve been training very hard and hope I have good form for this race. I want to do well and prepare myself to go back to Europe for the Belgium Classics and race hard for good results.”

 

“I am determined to put the Cannondale Pro Cycling jersey front and center. It’s a huge privilege to compete in the heart of cycling development,” said Wurf.  “Asian racing is generally very aggressive with numerous attacks, and I believe this could suit my riding style. I’ve had a good season thus far, and I am determined to find all the opportunities where I can excel during this race.

 

"We’re bringing a very strong and exciting team to Asia. I’m eager to race with Davide Formolo for the first time. He’s such a promising rider. I’m also ready to support Boivin as he seeks victory in the sprints. Our team is very balanced. I plan to be competitive and ride hard no matter how the race plays out.”

 

Boivin, who took top ten in three stages at the Herald Sun Tour in early February, is looking forward to play his chances in the sprints.

 

“We are obviously going into Taiwan with a very strong team, and I think we can take stage victories and do well in the race overall,” said the Canadian. “As for me, I have noticed windows to win and compete in sprints, and I’m hungry for my first win of the season. It would be great to do that before returning to Europe.”
