Cannondale-Garmin rides to success in Spain and France



King 1

The Cannondale-Garmin Pro Cycling team scored two big victories over the weekend. On Saturday, Ben King secured the team’s first individual race win of the season with a Stage 1 victory during the Criterium International in Corsica, France. The 26-year old came in as a late replacement for a sick teammate and he rebounded from a crash last week in Milan San Remo in big fashion.

“We’ve had some bad luck, but we haven’t lost our fighting spirit,” King said. “So, I desperately wanted to get the win for my teammates. That was my motivation. I’m happy I was able to deliver.”

King held the lead going into the third and final stage on Sunday, but fell off the pace and finished 32nd overall.

In the Volta a Catalunya on Sunday, Tom Danielson topped the podium for the King of the Mountain classification along with the Most Aggressive Rider award. Danielson, a veteran of the Cannondale-Garmin team, was pleased with his result in Spain. 

“This week has been an incredible experience,” Danielson explains. “I feel like I progressed as a rider learning to be more confident and take more risks.”
