Putting Chorus 11 speed on a 2011 cannondale synapse BB30

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Putting Chorus 11 speed on a 2011 cannondale synapse BB30

I won a cannondale synapse frame in a raffle, and it is a much better frame than I currently have so I want to switch my Chorus 11 speed group over to this bike but don't know what I am going to need to make the crank compatible with the BB30 set-up. I am fairly new to this I usually just buy a bike that is already complete so not sure what all I need. I see they have 2011 Campagnolo Ultra Torque BB30 Adapter, is this all I will need, do I need a special bottom bracket, a spacer or reducer etc. any help I would greatly appreciate!

All you need is this: http://www.campagnolo.com/jsp/en/gro...UT_catid_3.jsp It replaces your thread in cups...that's all you need.

Your a lucky dog winning a Synapse...that is the bike I'm looking at currently.
