German moves across from role with Joaquim Rodriguez and Katusha

Peter SaganAfter previously working with the T-Mobile/HTC Highroad and Katusha teams, the German sports scientist Sebastian Weber will move across to Cannondale Pro Cycling and help in training riders for the 2014 season.

The Italian WorldTour team has announced the move today, saying that the 36 year old will draw on the experience he has gained through working with riders such as Tony Martin, André Greipel, Tejay van Garderen and world number one Joaquim Rodriguez.

“I'm excited to join the Cannondale Pro Cycling team,” said Weber in the team announcement. “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.”

Weber will work with two other new Cannondale coaching acquisitions, namely Mattia Michelusi and Samuel Marangoni.

Michelusi’s background saw him work with the junior teams of the Italian Cycling Federation, as well as the Androni continental team. In 2012 he helped riders such as Elia Viviani to get ready for the Olympic Games in London.

Marangoni has worked with local Italian teams and through the Cycling Studies Centre of the Italian federation. He is the brother of the Cannondale Pro Cycling rider Alan Marangoni.

The team will include riders such as Peter Sagan, who is one of the strongest talents in the sport, former Giro d’Italia winner Ivan Basso, Viviani, and the emerging rider Moreno Moser, winner of the 2013 Strade Bianche.

“I'm eager to contribute and work closely with team coaches and management to provide the best support possible for the riders,” said Weber. “I understand that this is an outstanding, tight-knit, and professional group of men with extremely high potential to achieve great success.”

The team’s staff also includes the doctors Roberto Corsetti, Emilio Magni and Antonio Angelucci.
