The Volvo/Cannondale Mountain Bike Team's Anne-Caroline Chausson continues her Downhill dominance in World Cup competition, winning again this past weekend in Durango, Colorado. Her first place finishes in Vancouver and Durango these past two weekends take her to a career record of 30 World Cup wins! With these wins beneath her belt, the 23-year-old Frenchwoman becomes the winningest racer in World Cup history! (She bested the previous record, set by Juli Furtado.) In addition, Chausson took third in Women’s Dual competition on Saturday.<P><BR>But Chausson wasn’t the only Volvo/Cannondale rider who took a podium spot in Durango. Teammate Cedric Gracia nabbed third place in the Men’s Dual race, and the cross-country boys also grabbed medals.<P>Two flat tires within the first ten minutes of racing kept Christoph Sauser, who won the cross-country event in Vancouver, from finishing. That left New Zealander Kashi Leuchs and Australian Cadel Evans still on the course. On his way to finishing second overall, Leuchs passed his Evans in the final stretch. Evans, hobbled by a flat in the final two kilometers, powered through his misfortune for third place. <P><BR>SOURCE: Cannondale <BR>

At one time, when I had more time for biking, I had a Cannondale Delta V. It was a cool bike, with a wierd shaped frame. It had a shock on the front (Head Shok I think), but it was kind of a pain in the a$$. I had the frame replaced once because of probs with it. Overall though, I loved the bike, and I have a Cannondale touring bike now.<P>It's cool that Cannondale and Volvo are together. I wonder how I can get my hands on one of those Cannondale/Volvo jerseys?

Actually, I have a Killer V 900, much like the old Delta V, but without the cannondale head shok. It had a standard shock that I swapped out for a Manitou suspension fork. It's my second Cannondale MTB and my third 'dale (have an old touring bike too). <P>Aluminum is a great frame material, as it's quite rigid and it's also relatively inexpensive. <P>Did you look on their website, it looks like they are getting into motorcycles.<P>BTW, the jersey you asked about, I've seen it before in a bike shop I go to that sells Cannondale. I would imagine any Cannondale dealer would be able to get it for you.
