Team Garmin-Cervélo today announced it has added Alex Rasmussen, 2011 winner of the Philadelphia International Cycling Championship, Olympic silver medallist, former Danish national road cycling champion and four-time track world champion, to its roster for 2012.

"Alex is a great talent and we're very excited to bring him to our team in 2012," said Jonathan Vaughters, CEO, Slipstream Sports. "He's proven that he's versatile rider - he's obviously gifted on the track and he's translated that to the road. He is great in lead outs, he's an exceptional time trialist, and he's developing into a great Classics rider. He'll be a strong addition and we look forward to working with him next year."
