    Big Cannondale push at Downieville this year?

    I've been racing this race for 7 yrs or so. I see Cannondales here and there, but not many

    I saw few leftys, if at all, besides mine there.

    The Cannondale truck was there one year, like 2009 or something.

    I pull up Thur night, and the Cdale truck and trailer are there. There were demoing bikes on Friday. The rep said he'll be back then entire weekend next yr.

    There were a significantly more (relatively) Cdales racing on Saturday. There were many, many more Leftys out there also. I even saw 2 29er Scalpels get pulled out of a truck to ride on Friday to loosen up on the climb.

    Is there some push for west coast races recently?

    Or, is the Lefty FINALLY making some headway out here against our local fav company Fox Racing?

    Big Cannondale push at Downieville this year?

    Possibly trying to expand their presence on this side of the states. The demo truck was at the Hub in Roseville last weekend too. Plus they've got the WTB guys that are traditionally strong at D-ville racing for them now.
    All out of S**** and down to my last F***
    I think I strained a pucker muscle
