Drop bar, skinny tires & CX1 for Fontana
Once winter arrives Marco Aurelio Fontana (Cannondale Factory Team) swaps his mountain bike for his Cyclocross bike. The Olympic bronze medalist and one of the best cross-country MTB riders is also an incredible cyclocross rider, proving that again this month when he took his eighth Italian National Cyclocross Title.
This weekend the UCI Cyclocross World Championships are taking place in Tabor (Czech Republic) on a fast course that could be made more challenging with ice and snow.
The Italian rider, who is a big fan of our 1x system on his mountain bikes, has naturally chosen to race with our SRAM Force CX1 drivetrain and SRAM HyrdoR Hydraulic Disc brakes.
Let’s have a closer look at his Cannondale SuperX SRAM Force CX1 HRD that he will race on in Tabor:
