Two other former world road champions, Alessandro Ballan (2008) and Thor Hushovd (2010), headline the squad that also includes past national time trial champions Taylor Phinney (USA) and Marco Pinotti (ITA). In 2012, the team won 21 races, including 2 stages of the Giro d'Italia and 3 in the Vuelta a España, and placed two riders (van Garderen and Evans) in the top 10 at the Tour de France.
