At the end of the 2014 season, Cannondale relinquished its own WorldTour licence to take up the role as lead sponsor of the Cannondale-Garmin team.
The former Garmin-Sharp team, naturally, changed bike sponsor from Cervelo to Cannondale for 2015, and the squad’s riders will be utilising the American bike manufacturer’s SuperSix EVO Hi-Mod road machine.
We took a tour around Canadian Cannondale-Garmin pro Ryder Hesjedal‘s bike just prior to the Tour Down Under in Australia.
Hesjedal’s bike is a mix of old and new tech. The super-light frame is adorned with mechanical, rather than electronic, Shimano Dura-Ace groupset. It also appears as though Hesjedal does not have a power meter aboard his bike, as it’s fitted with Shimano pedals rather than Garmin’s Vector units – for the early-season Tour Down Under, at least.
