Garmin-Cervelo will be known as Garmin-Barracuda for the 2012 season, after the US-based team secured co-sponsorship from IT company Barracuda Networks.

“We are always looking for partners who, like Garmin, share our passion and commitment to the best innovations in technology, and Barracuda Networks is a perfect fit,” said Jonathan Vaughters, Garmin-Barracuda CEO.

“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.”

The squad will continue to ride Cervelo bikes.

The team will make its 2012 WorldTour debut at the Tour Down Under from January 17-22.
