Khawaja tapped to fill pontings spot
The three Irishmen also have experience of leading온 카지노 teams in high altitude disciplines at Giro d’Italia, which took place at Mt. Etna from August 1-4 last year.
The team has now qualified for the 2014 Giro and has been drawn in to the Pro Continental stage 1 at Le Mans on August 25th.
O’Brien won the Italian road race at the 2009 Vuelta as well as being a two-time stage winner at the 2010 Giro d’Italia.
Daly, a two-time Tour de France winner, won the world title in 2012 and 2013 and is also well placed to take his second overall victory of the season.
Meanwhile, O’Brien’s team-mate Mark Cavendish is at home for the 2015 Giro di Lombardia, with the rest of the team including Greg Van Avermaet, Tony Martin and Nairo Quintana all staying in Australia.
The Australian squad has been boosted on Sunday night as it starts the race in Gstaad, taking on Team Sky for the first time in the season finale which takes place on the final day.
The race, which comes on at 14.25 CET, has long-standing rivalry between O’Brien’s Irish team-mate Van Avermaet and team-mate Cavendish.
Sky had been strongly criticised for not allowing the two to compete for positions in this year’s Giro, although the Irishman claimed last month that he would remain with the team.
