The location is the Black Forest trails, near Freiburg, Germany, five minutes from Cannondale’s European R&D facility. It’s spring of 2022 and the Cannondale Moterra Neo LT has just been unveiled. The dirt is of the hero variety. The level of stoke is high. The directive? To send it.
“Ride first is a philosophy that not only encompasses our product development but is infused in our culture and is in every aspect of what we do from product creation to having a meeting on the trail. It keeps us designing bikes for the rider because we are the rider.”
Travis Tomczak, Cannondale Mountain Bike Manager
