Cannondale Factory Racing (CFR) goes into its 7th season and still follows the same approach: Perform on the highest level of the sport and have fun while doing so. #WHATSBEHIND
is a video series capturing the full experience of the rider's 2015 campaign.
For 2015 the lineup changes slightly with a look towards the 2016 Olympic games in Rio de Janeiro Brazil. Manuel Fumic and Marco Aurelio Fontana are the base of the team being long term Cannondale Athletes. Their unique style, personalities and way to approach the sport has formed CFR into what it is today. Youngster, Anton Cooper starts his 3rd season with the team and has grown into the ranks of the U23 World Cups. Mani Fumic leads Anton Cooper and Marco Fontana down the descent at Bonelli Park in California.
The newest addition is the Brazilian, Henrique Avancini. A local hero in his home country, he will follow the steps of Fumic and Fontana to be a top player in the sport of professional MTB XC racing. He has all the components needed to be on top of the game in the World Cup and for sure will be one of the crowd favorites in his home race in 2016: The Olympic MTB Race.Henrique Avancini battles the SoCal heat and dust
CFR started the season with an early approach on the North American racing scene, opting for the US CUP races in California for the month of March. In April the focus is on European soil to prepare in the best way for the upcoming first 2 rounds of the UCI MTB XCO World Cup in Nove Mesto/CZE and Albstadt/GER. With the full focus on the World Cup, World Championships and the so important Olympic Qualification, CFR will be faced with a tight schedule, but will still maintain time to ride bikes for fun and keep their level up in other disciplines. Manuel Fumic, Marco Fontana and Anton Cooper plan another approach to the EWS in Finale Ligure and some other fun races at the end of the 2015 season.Marco Fontana airing it out on the F-Si hardtailAnton Cooper puts his newly awarded New Zealand National Champion Jersey in front of the pack and to the top of the podium at the Fontana US CupManuel Fumic gaining elevation
