"The 2015 Cannondale-Garmin Pro Cycling team has great things ahead of it and this night was just the beginning," said Scott Rittschof, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Cannondale.  "We are fortunate to have such a strong, young team that will take us to new heights and incredible partners that will support them on the way there."

In addition to all of the excitement, attendees were allowed to experience 2015 team technology from partners including Cannondale, Garmin, New Balance, Mavic, Castelli, POC, FSA/Vision, Fizik, Kinnetic and got a first look at the new Cannondale magazine, The Cannondale Gazette.

This incredible technology will be the differentiator for Cannondale-Garmin athletes on the road.  The team will be riding three race-proven bikes this year:

Cannondale SuperSix carbon is the ultimate road-racing machine that will be underneath the riders for the Grand Tours and Ardennes Classics events. At 700 grams, the SuperSix EVO Hi-MOD is the lightest production frame in the world using Cannondale's proprietary BallisTec carbon and Cannondale's SPEED SAVE micro-suspension system technology.

Cannondale Synapse Hi-MOD carbon is designed for mixed road surfaces, hours in the saddle with the miles ticking by, nasty weather and early season racing that has a unique rhythm. The ideal blend of compliance, rigidity and weight, the Synapse Hi-MOD carbon is completely re-designed with features like the SAVE PLUS micro-suspension technology, BallisTec Hi-MOD carbon technology, Power Pyramid, providing a stable base of power for unleashing even the most aggressive sprints. 

Cannondale Slice RS is designed specifically for speed and will be used exclusively in the team time trial events where going the absolute fastest from point A to point B is the ultimate goal.  Designed with Cannondale NaeroTec technology, radical steerer-less fork, windshadow brakes and a crazy-looking seat post, have all been designed to minimize the surface area presented to the wind.

Cannondale-Garmin Pro Cycling features an impressive, young roster comprised of 27 athletes from 14 different countries. The team will continue its mission of developing future champions with talented young rider additions including Joe Dombrowski, Alberto Bettiol, Davide Formolo, Matej Mohoric, Kristoffer Skjerping, Davide Villella and Ruben Zepuntke. The squad will be anchored by more experienced riders including Dan Martin, winner of the 2014 Giro di Lombardia and 7th overall in the 2014 Vuelta; Ryder Hesjedal, 2012 Giro Champion and 2014 Vuelta stage winner; Ramunas Navardauskas, 2014 Tour de France Stage winner and Lithuanian Time Trial Champion and Andrew Talansky, 2014 Dauphine winner and the top American in the 2013 Tour de France (where he was 10th overall).
