Press Release: Cannondale Enduro Team

Cannondale's Enduro Team is ready for the 2023 enduro season with new faces, kits, and goals. The team's roster will consist of Ella Conolly, Max Beaupré, and Iago Garay, who also functions as the team captain.

Ella Conolly is back with Cannondale for a sixth season and has her sights on chasing the top step of the EDR podium after a strong year last season. Max Beaupré gets the bump up to an entire EDR season and aims to follow up on his top 20 results from Sugarloaf in 2022. Iago Garay, an enduro world series veteran, is excited to have a fresh start and team atmosphere for the new EDR season while being ready to get back into the top 20.

bigquotesI am so excited for this Enduro World Cup season, my 6th year on a Cannondale already! It’s great to see the team growing. We have the best crew to hit the races with and have a lot to learn from each other. Having the support of Cannondale and the freedom to each choose personal sponsors is a dream combo. After last year, my sights are set high for this season. Our team camp in Italy was a huge success and the bikes are primed ready to go. The countdown to Tasmania is on!Ella Conolly

bigquotesLooking forward to traveling the world this season, attacking all types of terrain alongside two of the biggest legends in the cycling world! My biggest goal this year is to learn as much as possible from my teammates and crack the top 30 consistently. Another thing I’m super excited about is the support system I have behind me for this season. I find a lot of value in a brand who focuses on the needs and desires of their athletes and Cannondale embodies both of those traits to the highest regard. It’s been a dream of mine to get to this point and it’s an honor and a privilege to be a part of this team!Max Beaupré

bigquotesCouldn’t be happier to ride Cannondale bikes this season. Team camp was amazing and the bike is feeling so dialed it has got me fired up to race! Looking forward to the first EDR world cups in Tasmania where I will try to get back into the top 20. It’s going to be a great season traveling with Max and Ella.Iago Garay

 that Jekyl is a few years old now, but the more I see it the better it looks. One of the most beautiful bikes out there, in my opinion.
  • 40 1
 not even 2 years old

 It's a 2022 model. I think they sent some review bikes out late 2021. But most consumers weren't able to get them until mind-2022. It's a sweet bike, it's so much fun.

 Yeah, that and the GT Force Carbon. Very similar and both are SO good.

 It is a lovely looking bike

 @MrShreddypants: Just to confirm,
Youve ridden both and think both the Jekyl and the GT Force Carbon are SO good?

 It pretty new, but youre right, it looks great. Outside of the Transition bikes, I think its right up there in terms of looks

 @onawalk: I don't know about the GT but my Jekyll still blows me away with how well it handles.

 @lifeofloon: Yeah, I bet,
Bike is a stunner, looks great.

I havent jumped on the HP bandwagon yet, not that I dont think the reasoning isnt sound, just havent found one that fits me better than my Spire. Heavily considered the Range, but at the time I didnt want a carbon bike, ended up with a carbon bike.....#Covidproblems

I was having some with my 12s XT setup. But I went back to sram and they all went away.

 @onawalk: have yet to ride a high pivot bike that was actually fun for daily riding. They’re undeniably faster but harder to get off the ground with much less pop than the horst link bikes I’m used to
  • 1 0
 @onawalk: Yup. Pretty similar handling, but I ended up buying the GT cause I found one 30ish percent off in a winter sale. I was surprised how much pep it has. It’s my daily driver now. @drakefan705 I beg to differ. It’s probably just personal preference though.

 @waldo-jpg: it’s been in the wild since before Covid

 @drakefan705: I guess it really depends on what your daily riding is.
Loads of HP bikes around here, and guys look to be having fun daily on them.

 It is a great looking bike, sucks that they do that 3mm offset thing with their rear wheels still, sort of makes building up a frame a huge pain in the ass. Plus, no mullet link yet? ugh

 @makemymountain: You dont need a mullet link, jesus wept, if you want to ride a mullet, just do it

 @eteyber: no I have not. I'm running it full XT with no guide.

@drakefan705 I'm sorry that's been your experience. I've found the opposite with the Jekyll. I was skeptical thing into it as it was a Large and I usually ride a medium, it was also my first 29er, I've been holding strong to 27.5 but this thing is just as much fun and as playful as my Chromag Stylus.

 Im waiting to see an updated HABIT with similair lines - that would be sick! Its seems to have dissapeared from most websites so somethinsg cookin' - but agree those bikes are amazing looking.

 Max!!! We’re excited to root you on this season!

 Stoked for Max and seeing him giving all that energy on the world stage. Really dig his colorway, too. Hope a CatsWithHardHats sticker makes it on there since that is about 1/3 of his ig stories.

 GO MAX

 All i know is Max is gonna get loose with it

 Yeah Max!

 Looks like clothing sponsorship is an individual rather than team arrangement. Max: TLD, Ella: Rapha & Iago: 7mesh.
  • 2 0
 Was thinking the same! Also, that I love 7mesh these days, having worn TLD in my DH years, and couldn't imagine posing around in Rapha.

 Ride Kanuga/Rock Creek, so Neko and Dave Lamond are/is sponsoring Max with kit. IDK about the other two.

 HP is the definitely the future but the Jekyll isn't gonna be a top contender. My guess is PON will kill that bike once they see how poorly it sells. I just don't see Cannondale as a strong mountain brand anymore. Maybe they'll roll that tech over to GT and see what their designers can do with it.

 @TannerValhouli: I was surprised to learn that Maxwell Beaupré is east coast USA-based, possibly less expensive than Ropelato, and that UCI uses GBR instead of UK
