Jonathan Vaughters' team has developed into one of the strongest and most admired teams in the UCI WorldTour and look to continue its run of success in 2012.

Barracuda is a new second sponsor but the team again uses Cervelo bicycles and has kept its blue and argyle team colours that distinguish the USA-registered team in the peloton.

“We are always looking for partners who share our passion and commitment to the best innovations in technology, and Barracuda Networks is a perfect fit. The partnership with Barracuda Networks is long-term and the company will also allow Slipstream Sports to continue to pursue other co-title sponsor opportunities” Vaughters explained.

“We had our strongest season in the history of the team in 2011, and we’ll be looking to build on that success in 2012. Our roster has an outstanding mix of new and returning riders, with both veteran and young talent excelling in all disciplines of the sport. This will allow us to continue to do what we do best, win as a team.”
The team had a successful early part to the season with breakthrough wins by Sep Vanmarcke in Omloop Het Nieuwsblad and Michel Kreder at the Tour Méditerranéen. Thor Hushovd has moved to the BMC Racing Team, but the squad is just as strong thanks to the sprinting skills of Tyler Farrar, classics riders Heinrich Haussler, Martijn Maaskant, Paris-Roubaix winner Johan Van Summeren, Fabian Wegmann, Andreas Klier, Ryder Hesjedal and David Millar.

The team is packed with experienced and consistently good stage racers. Christian Vande Velde leads the team because of his experience and intelligence but Tom Danielson, Dan Martin, Christophe Le Mevel and David Zabriskie will again cause Vaughters headaches when it comes to selecting his team leaders for the biggest races. Abundance of talent is a problem every team manager is happy to have.

Other standout riders in the Garmin-Barracuda roster include Jack Bauer, Thomas Dekker, Koldo Fernandez, Nathan Haas, Ramunas Navardauskas, plus talented young American riders Pete Stetina, Andrew Talansky and new signings Jacob Rathe and Alex Howes.
