Andrew Talansky, the top American at the 2013 Tour de France – finishing tenth overall, and Dan Martin, Tour de France stage winner and winner of Liege-Baston-Liege, are poised to continue their strong results; Tyler Farrar and Steele Von Hoff will be focused on sprint finishes; and young sensations Rohan Dennis and Lachlan Morton will continue to build on their 2013 seasons.
