Cannondale Pro Cycling has announced that German sports scientist Sebastian Weber has joined the team to train and prepare riders for the 2014 season. Weber is also slated to manage Italian trainers Mattia Michelusi and Samuel Marangoni.

As coach, Weber has had more than 120 wins in six years.
“I’m excited to join the Cannondale Pro Cycling team. The 2014 season will be an important and challenging year for the team. They need to not only reach the results set last year, but exceed them as well,” said Weber. “I’m eager to contribute and work closely with team coaches and management to provide the best support possible for the riders. I understand that this is an outstanding, tight-knit, and professional group of men with extremely high potential to achieve great success.”
In addition to Weber, Cannnondale Pro Cycling has brought on Mattia Michelusi and Samuel Marangoni.

Marangoni has worked with local Italian teams and has experience with the Cycling Studies Centre of the Italian Federation.
