While the Cannondale p/b Cyclocrossworld.com team began in 2006, its origins go back all the way to 1995 when director Stu Thorne took the now legendary cyclocross racer, Tim Johnson to his first CX practice in Concord, MA. The result of that early support was a relationship that cultivated six National Championships and the longest running professional cyclocross program in the U.S. Along the way, the program helped launch the cyclocross careers of riders like Jeremy Powers, Marc Gullickson and Lyne Bessette. The team also helped with research and development of early product lineups from SRAM and it built a culture of support and success around cyclocross that sparked similar programs.
The team’s title sponsorship with Cannondale began in 2006 and the Cyclocrossworld.com development program kicked off in 2011. Roster members of the team in its various incarnations can claim 19 National Champions, 4 USGP Champs, 1 NACT Champion and a Pan-Am Championship and a Masters World Championships. Today, our aim remains to support cyclocross at the highest levels and to continue its progression in the U.S. and beyond through the performances, feedback and visibility of our supported riders.
