and Cannondale Factory Racing announced that Canadian Max Plaxton will join the team as it heads into its 6th season. Plaxton joins Marco Aurelio Fontana, Manuel Fumic, Anton Cooper, and Keegan Swenson.
After a year with Sho-Air/Cannondale
in North America, and proven World Cup results (three top ten placings including a fifth-place podium) supported by Cannondale Factory Racing, it was the next logical step to have Plaxton officially join the Cannondale Factory Racing Team. During 2014, Plaxton will continue to aim for consistent top ten finishes and world cup podiums.
Along with the addition of Max
to Cannondale Factory Racing, Sho-Air International joins as a new team sponsor after a successful year with the Sho-Air/Cannondale North American race program. Sho-Air International, a California-based tradeshow and event transportation company, has long wanted to partner with Cannondale Factory Racing. Cannondale Factory Racing is known for supporting and proactively advancing the sport of XC mountain biking – a sentiment shared by Sho-Air.
The Cannondale Factory Racing team will focus not only on the XCO World Cup, but the riders will compete globally with major appearances especially in North America. They will start a great Olympic qualification period and are a strong contender for the UCI World Cup team ranking as well.
Riders will use the F29 and Scalpel for most races this season to showcase a team that competes at the highest level of cross-country mountain biking.
