Friday File: Rolland, Martin & Stetina on the move, Wide open Vuelta, #Nibali & Colnago Steel Master

Say hello Cannondale
Garmin and to more polka dots.

Transfer season is on and three good moves for 2016...

1. Pierre Rolland

Europcar is on it's final road with many riders looking for a 2016 ride. Pierre Rolland rides up to World Tour Cannondale-Garmin to replace outgoing Ryder Hesjedal. With a new team behind him, Rolland can perform well in the mountains classification.

"He is a rider who I believe can one day win the polka dot jersey and is an exciting addition to our 2016 line-up."
- Jonathan Vaughters.

2. Peter Stetina

Peter Stetina will leave BMC to Trek Factory and re-unite with Ryder Hesjedal...

"Trek Factory was the right move for the next step in my career and comeback. I'm ready for Stetina 2.0, the next logical step post-injury. I would support Bauke and Ryder in their races and then also target the American races as a personal goal."
- Peter Stetina

3. Dan Martin

Here's the last 3 km of stage 7's mountain top finish...

Chris Froome loses time on the favorites and shows cracks today. Esteban Chaves stays in red and is looking to be a valid GC contender. Despite early days, this is a wide open Vuelta.


Colnago, thankfully, makes the Master in Italy, here's how it's made...
