Mike’s Cannondale EVO Hi Mod Disc Behind the Ride

Views: 1174

Having fielded questions all season about my kit and equipment, in this episode of ‘Behind the Ride’ I thought it would be interesting to take a deep dive into my latest bike, Cannondale’s new EVO Hi Mod Disc, as well as taking a leap back in time to share some of my fondest memories and moments as to how I’ve come to use what I do.

From saddling up on two time Giro d’Italia winner Paolo Savoldelli’s CAAD5 way back in 2000, to 24 hour mountain bike racing, all the way through to big days (and nights) in the mountains and much, much, more.

I’ll be honest I didn’t intend on this video to be half as long as it is but I guess I just like talking about bikes! I hope you enjoy learning a little more about my past and checking out what I’m riding in the present. For the full spec of the bike see below…..
