Cannondale Pro Cycling Team to focus on the general classification while sharpening grand-tour form

The early season march of stage races continues, with the challenging Volta A Catalunya rolling out Monday in Spain. There should be a few fleet finishes, but the jaunt into the Catalan Pyrénées ensures that one of this season’s GC contenders will win the week-long race.

To that end, the Cannondale Pro Cycling Team brings a squad dedicated to the overall standings while allowing for crucial experience. Rigoberto Uran will captain the team, with support from the likes of Joe Dombrowski, André Cardoso and Michael Woods.

“Rigoberto is looking to pop off a good performance at Catalunya,” Slipstream Sports CEO Jonathan Vaughters said. “It’s super mountainous. Every stage is hard.
