The recent addition to Cannondale’s Factory U.S. Racing Team for 2010 is Manuel Fumic. He was recruited to join other new cyclists Jeremiah Bishop and Tinker Juarez. Cannondale planned to expand their reach in the United States in 2010. January showed the acquisition of Juarez and Bishop. They formerly raced for MonaVie-Cannondale in 2009. The two cyclists will be racing in the U.S. circuit. CFR means to compete in World Cup races and long distance runs.
Fumic, the former Olympian will be racing this March at the SRAM XX Maremma MTB Cup in Italy to represent CFR. He will be with Italian teammate Marco Aurelio Fontana. CFR’s roster of riders also includes Roel Paulissen who is Belgium’s pride for being the 2008 Marathon World Champion and Swiss Martin Gujan.
Happy over their new teamplayer, Daniel Hespeler, CFR team manager, remarked, “I am confident that the team infrastructure will not only support Manuel’s current level of competition, but will allow him to develop his skills so he can move to the next level.”
Fumic’s goal is to grace the World Cup podium this year and dominate London 2012. He is excited to try and test Cannondale’s lefty-equipped Flash and Scalpel to help him reach his goals.
