It turns out that our article back in December during the height of Racing Rumours fever stating that Jerome Clementz wouldn't be riding for Cannondale anymore wasn't entirely accurate. It turns out that the iconic Enduro World Series rider will still be able to ride on Cannondale bicycles. However, he's taken a step back from racing and is no longer a professional athlete for Cannondale.
Instead, he's transitioned to a different type of career within the mountain bike industry and has taken a new role with Cycling Sports Group as the MTB Coordinator Europe for Cannondale, GT, and Fabric.
We wish Jerome all the best with his new role.
It's time to tell you what's new for me in 2020. After my post in December, many people understood that I would leave Cannondale as I was thanking them for the amazing 11 years of racing as a pro athlete.
In a way, it's true as my new contract is not with Cannondale anymore but Cycling Sports Group.
When I stop racing EWS at the end of 2017, I was looking for a transition. My plan was to show that I could do something else than ride fast.
My ultimate goal was to find a job in the industry where my experience of the MTB world could be useful.
Since the 1st of January, Cycling Sports Group gave me this opportunity as the MTB Coordinator Europe for Cannondale, GT and Fabric. @ridecannondale @gtbicycles @fabriccycling
I'll be "on the ground", in relation with media, events, ambassadors, and everything related to the riding experience.
As my love for riding is high, I'll keep racing here and there and running few media projects on my "down time", so you can still expect to see some content from my side.
I'll keep a role of ambassador for some of my sponsors.
I'm happy with this new chapter and I would like to thanks all the people that made this happen and who trusted me.
I'm looking forward to support the brands and all the great people working at CSG.—Jerome Clementz
So he`s something like 35y-o, more or less.
Mtb makes young retired. Jérôme didn`t seem rusty yet.
I wish him a good second life though...
Anyway, it's good to see a pro managing his post-racer life well.
