Cannondale Pro Cycling Team
Cannondale Pro Cycling Team (UCI team code: CAN), previously known as Liquigas, then Liquigas-Doimo and Liquigas-Cannondale, is an Italian professional road bicycle racing team in the UCI WorldTour.
The team was formed at the start of the UCI ProTour in 2005. the team was co-title sponsored by Italian companies Liquigas and Bianchi, therefore it was named Liquigas-Bianchi. It featured a number of big names including Italian riders Mario Cipollini, Danilo Di Luca and Stefano Garzelli, as well as Magnus Bäckstedt.
In 2007, Cannondale replaced Bianchi as the bicycle sponsor. This marked Cannondale’s return to the ProTour after discontinuing sponsorship of the Lampre-Caffita team at the end of the 2005 season. Being an American company, their sponsorship led to a small American ridership on the team.
From the 2009 Giro d’Italia until the 2012 Tour de France, the team finished every Grand Tour with all nine riders, a total of 11 such events in succession. In 2010, Ivan Basso won the Giro d’Italia and Vincenzo Nibali won the Vuelta a España.
For the 2013 cycling season, Liquigas-Cannondale became Cannondale Pro Cycling as Cannondale Bicycle Corporation took over as the title sponsor in partnership with Brixia Sports.
