...good for Marla! - I met her and rode with her a bit at the 2004 U.S. Open, and I can tell you she is one great Lady - laid back, down to earth, and intelligent.
...hmmm I was reading further in the same page and it said that at the end of 2005 the C-Dale/Siemens partnership will be dissolved. I heard somewhere (was it here???) that Cedric Gracia is leaving C-dale to ride for Comencal bikes. Is that still happening??? It just doesn't make sense to me from him to leave C-dale the exact SAME YEAR C-dale plans to start selling his signature model DH bikes (Gracia DH, Gracia 1, etc...) How does C-dale plan to account for the namesake of a frame/bike model riding for another company???
Nope Vredestein, at least for the XC team anyway. C'dale has assembled a good xc team but I feel bad for them since there will be no tire selection unless they have some big things in development. If Vredestein is in for the gravity side as well, they will really have to come up with something new.
