Cannondale-Garmin Pro Cycling today announced that Ben King has re-upped with the team, and that it has added Phil Gaimon to the 2016 line-up.
 
Jonathan Vaughers, CEO of Slipstream Sports and Cannondale-Garmin Pro Cycling said:


“Ben is a very talented rider and he is still developing his skills. In 2015 he showed glimpses of what he will be capable of in the coming years, and a highlight was his performance at World Championships, which was absolutely amazing to watch. Plus, he loves bass fishing, which is something more professional riders should love.”
 
King, 26-years old, has raced with the team since 2014.  He raced his first Tour de France that year and in 2015 he won Stage 1 of Criterium International and netted a Silver medal at the U.S. National Time Trial Championships.
 
King said: “I'm really excited and proud to keep living the dream with the team in 2016. When you battle through the most difficult days, celebrate victories, and support each other as teammates, you become really good friends. That's the most rewarding part of the sport for me. Plus, the entire staff has been so supportive and given me every opportunity to get the best out of myself. I've improved every year and feel like I still have a lot of potential to realize. I hope to have a consistent 2016 and build on another Grand Tour and year of experience.”
 
Gaimon rode for Slipstream Sports in the 2014 season, where he won his first race - Stage 1 of the 2014 Tour de San Luis, finishing second overall. He re-joins the team in 2016 and is excited to don argyle again:
 
“I had a great experience and the opportunity of a lifetime when I raced for the team back in 2014. I learned a lot about how to race in Europe, how to navigate the pack, control breakaways and better help leaders," said Gaimon. "I’m thrilled to come back in 2016 with another year of racing experience under my belt and apply everything I have learned along the way. It will be good to be back in argyle.”
 
Vaughters added:  “Phil is an intelligent rider and a good person. Both are attributes needed in any team, and we are very happy to have him back in our ranks.”
