    Great win for Nibali, and he was also on the Podium in the Giro. That makes 3 grand tour podiums. Chicchi also won a sprint in Italy... And Tim Johnson won his first two races on the new Cannondale SuperX this weekend. Good weekend for Cannondale.

    I think the Cannondale cross guys are going to win a lot of races.

    Lets have a hand for Jeremiah Bishop winning the Pisgah stage race , the third FIVE day marathon event, after the Breck Epic and Trans-Sylvania, he has won this year for Cannondale Factory Racing on a combination of Flash and Scalpel, he's a great racer and a great personality.

    I think he did.

    The guy had an amazing season. I wonder what happend in Germany for the Marathon Worlds? Just looking over some of the video interviews on Cyclingdirt he mentioned it as a major goal of the season. But winning the three biggest mtb stage races in the US, winning Massanutten, plus a bunch of other podiums, he had a good season!

    I'd really like to see Cannondale put something on the official site congratulating him. Seems like they've done it for all their other important victories this year.

    The end of Stage 20 was good racing.

    Congrats to Nibali for the Vuelta overall and another congrats to Basso for the Giro overall.

    Makes me want a tasty Super Six mmmmmm...

    Totally agree, I think him and Alex Grant are seriously overlooked compared to other CFR riders from across the pond.
