Cannondale officially introduced their new pro team Cannondale Pro Cycling at the famous Paramount Studio in Hollywood, CA on the evening of January 12. The Team Launch was a first class event, which featured a red carpet for the riders, including Team captains Ivan Basso, Peter Sagan, Elia Viviani, and Moreno Moser, to walk down after exiting from their limo. Celebrities including actress Erika Christensen and actors Shemar Moore and Joe Mantegna from the television hit Criminal Minds were also in attendance.
Cycling personality Bob Roll introduced each team member from the Cannondale Pro Cycling Team after they made a dynamic entrance into the theater on their bikes in an amazing choreographed spectacle that ended with confetti falling across the theater.
The chemistry between the riders on the Cannondale Pro Cycling Team was apparent and we should look for more winning results on the world stage from the team in 2013.
