Cannondale will line up at the Vuelta a Espana with a versatile roster with multiple options. Peter Sagan will return to the race for the first time since 2011 and will target stage wins with Alessandro De Marchi while Damiano Caruso will target the GC.

 

Cannondale Pro Cycling is ready to attend the last Grand Tour of the 2014 season, the Vuelta a Espana, with a strong and well-rounded team. The Green Machine will race in Spain from Saturday, August 23 through Sunday, September 14. The first stage will be a team time trial in Jerez de la Frontera. Cannondale Pro Cycling will aim to be among the main contenders of the race with different goals targeted for each of the leaders and the team.
 
The crucial rider for Cannondale Pro Cycling will be Peter Sagan. This is the Slovakian champion's second Grand Tour of the Season following the Tour de France. His skills will be the team's weapon to take stage wins. Italian Alessandro De Marchi, the most combative rider of the 2014 Grande Boucle, will also be a key rider to fight for the hilly and mixed terrain stages.
 
Damiano Caruso will be the leader in the mountains, trying for stage wins and fighting for the best result in the general classification. Oscar Gatto's attitude will be very useful to search stage wins and support the main leaders. Kiwi climber George Bennett will have a similar role in the mountains, while Maciej Bodnar, Paolo Longo Borghini, and Matthias Krizek will ensure that the team has a full squad of reliable support to manage the race. Canadian sprinter Guillaume Boivin will have his main chances in the bunch arrivals.
 
"The riders we selected offer us the chance to be really competitive almost everywhere," said team director Mario Scirea, who will lead the riders with Dario Mariuzzo. "Sagan, De Marchi and Caruso are three leaders and top riders, but I think the entire team is solid and strong. Even if the Vuelta is the last grand tour, it's a very hard competition and we're ready to play our role. We'll try to make our race all the times we'll have the chances. We want to leave a strong mark on the race."
