Cannondale

U.S.-based Cannondale takes over as the title sponsor of Italy's perennially top-ranked team. In recent years, the squad has dominated America's top races including the USA Pro Challenge. Headlined by young superstar Peter Sagan, 23, and two-time Tour of Italy winner Ivan Basso for the past couple of seasons, the team has a strong balance of sprinters, one-day riders, and young all arounders. Nicknamed "The Terminator," the Slovakian Sagan won record eight stage wins at the Tour of California and went on to win three stages while capturing the sprint points jersey at the 2012 Tour de France. While Sagan is fast, teammate Elia Viviani may be faster. The team boasts arguably the fastest sprinters from six countries, yet, remain with rising stage racers like Moreno Moser and Damiano Caruso. Cannondale also fronts American strongman, Ted King, 3rd place overall at the 2011 U.S. Professional Championships.
