9 Ball Diaries

I saw the trailer for this movie earlier, but I want to present it to you too. It's about Tim Johnson, a true cyclocross racer. Of course that he is riding a Cannondale bike :D. Even if I am not the biggest fan of cyclocross races, I do appreciate this rider for what he is doing, one of his quotes motivating me a lot: You never win easy, you always work hard ! This is pushing me to continue to achieve something bigger than last year.

By the way, if you know an online shop that has the movie and ships it to Romania, could you please drom me a message?

Thank you very much and keep on rollin'

Cannondale Factory Tour

I am pretty sure that not all of you know how a real bike factory looks. I wanna present you, in 2 movies, how the Cannondale factory looks like. How a piece of metal is getting into a real race machine.

I am pretty sure that you will like these movies and will appreciate all the work from everyone working at Cannondale, because you will see, Cannondale is not just a bike, it's a way of living.

That's why the Cannondale motto is a special one: FEEL IT !
