Anne-Caroline Chausson has returned to her roots by signing with Commencal Bikes of France. The company is headed by Max Commencal, former head of Sunn Bicycles. Chausson earned seven of her many World Championships with Sunn alongside Nicolas Vouilloz. Rumor has it Anne-Caro will spend less time abroad this season and may concentrate her World Cup efforts in Europe. You may have read recently that Anne-Caro and her Cannondale teammate Cedric Gracia were inseparable, and any team looking to pony up need do so for both riders. No word yet on Cedric's ride for 2003, but with his recent real estate purchase in the lower mainland, my guess would have him still riding for Cannondale.
