The Cannondale Pro Cycling team published an official trailer today. You can see the teams’ new kit and sense of humor in this 3-minute video below.

Cannondale Pro Cycling Team

The cycling team now we know as the Cannondale Pro Cycling Team was founded under the name Liquigas in 1999, and was long in the second division (with Professional Continental license), slowly making a name for itself. From 2005 the team was combined with Team Bianchi and changed its name “Liquigas-Bianchi” for the Pro Tour.

In 2007, American bicycle manufacturer Cannondale replaced Bianchi as the bicycle sponsor, and the team became Liquigas. The team raced under the name of Liquigas between 2007 and 2009, Liquigas-Doimo in 2010, and Liquigas-Cannondale both in 2011 and 2012. At the end of 2012, Italian liquid gas company Liquigas has left the sponsorship, and the team went under the name of “Cannondale Pro Cycling”.

The 2013 season for Cannondale will begin in January with the Tour Down Under in Australia. As a UCI ProTeam, they will be automatically invited and obligated to send a squad to every event in the UCI World Tour.
