Now with Vanmarcke struggling with rib pain, the prospects for Cannondale are not looking good for the forthcoming races. They can easily lose over 3 minutes in that ridiculous TTT in Catalunya.

Talansky, Formolo, Canty, Rolland, Villella, Carthy, Howes, Woods
No Koren and no Phinney out of those who were supposed to be there. Man, this will be a disastrous TTT. Apart from leaving Talansky, they couldn't line-up much worse team TT-wise. They didn't even include Craddock or Brown.
