What the hell just happened.
Cannondale is one of the first teams to announce their roster for a WT race!
Cannondale-Drapac for the 2017 Tour Down Under:
Tom Van Asbroeck
I wonder who are they going to ride for. Both Woods and Slagter enjoyed a strong form in this race in the past, but maybe someone like Canty will surprise? Will Van Asbroeck try to sprint?
Cannondale comes with a very, very strong squad. I personally think they will ride for Woods, I have a feeling he will show up in monster form again this year.
B. Canty can defiantly surprise, though. He was in a class of his own, on the climbs at the Australian Championships and has proven that these short interval climbs suit him very, very well. For example, at the Tour of Austria last year, where he also opened up a huge gap on the Sonntagberg and went on to take his first triumph on European soil. I will defiantly be cheering for him!
Canty started racing in October 2013 and already the following year he won on Tawonga Gap (7.6km @ 6% gradient) beating other great climbers such as Matthew Clark, Ben Dyball and another former runner turned cyclist Freddy Ovett for example... Canty has massive potential!
