I have a lot of respect for the team and I’m looking forward to becoming a part of what Jonathan Vaughters has put together,” said King. “I was teammates on the U.S. national team with Andrew Talansky and Alex Howes, so we work well together, and I will consider myself lucky to race alongside all the guys on the team. I began my international racing career on
Cervélo with the HotTubes Junior Development team, so its nice to come full circle with them.”

“Ben is a great young rider with a lot of promise and we look forward to continuing to help him develop his considerable talent,” said Jonathan Vaughters, CEO, Slipstream Sports and Team Garmin-Sharp.

King’s Palmares include Best Young Rider, Tour of Beijing (2011); 9th National TT Championships (2011); 1st, National Professional Road Race Championships (2010) 1st, National U23 Road Race Championships (2010), 1st, National U23 Criterium Championships (2010), 1st Panamerican Road Championships (2010); 1st Panamerican Time Trial Championships (2010) and 3rd overall at the Coupe des Nations (2010).
