January 3/11 12:59 pm - Team Garmin-Cervélo Announces 2011 Men's & Women's Rosters

Posted by Editor on 01/3/11

Garmin-Transitions and Cervélo Test Team merged at the end of last season to produce a team that should be a strong contender in both one day Classics and the Grand Tours.  With the merger some riders were shed, including, unfortunately, three Canadians - Svein Tuft and Christian Meier from Garmin and Dominique Rollin from Cervélo.  However, Tour de France contender Ryder Hesjedal remains with the squad.

Today, Slipstream Sports unveiled its roster for 2011 Team Garmin-Cervélo, comprised of 29 men and 10 women hailing from 16 countries.

The team is highlighted by world champions Thor Hushovd and Emma Pooley, sprint sensation Tyler Farrar, Ryder Hesjedal, rising star Lizzie Armitstead and men's team leader, Christian Vande Velde. The team also boasts several current and former national champions including Murilo Fischer, Cameron Meyer, Travis Meyer and Emma Pooley. The men's team will be headed up on the road by Director of Competition, Matt White. The women's team director will be announced shortly.

"We're incredibly excited about 2011. Our men's roster is our strongest yet and we have what we think could be the strongest women's team in the world," said Jonathan Vaughters, CEO, Slipstream Sports. "For the men, we have one of the strongest lead out trains in the peloton along with one of the strongest Classics line-ups. The women's squad brings a wealth of experience and honors and we are incredibly excited to see what they do on the road this year. We have the opportunity and the objective to become the number one ranked team - men and women - by the year's end, and to do it with the same ethical code we started out with. Whatever happens, we'll give our fans and our sponsors many reasons to cheer in 2011."

Team Garmin-Cervélo will kick off its first training camp in Calpe, Spain, in January.  Slipstream Sports is dedicated to developing the next generation of cycling champions and in addition to the new Team Garmin-Cervélo, it will also operate Continental and Junior teams. Additional information on these teams, including rosters, will be available in the coming month.
