Has Matt Simmonds Been Spotted on a Prototype Cannondale Downhill Frame in Lousa?
We're a bit confused here as the shock seems to be in a different position to photos we've seen before. However we recognise the chainstays and downtube from other photos circulating the web. What we can tell is that the bike is using a 29" front wheel, and probably a 29 inch rear wheel too. It has also got a idler pulley on the chain and there seems to be something going on just above the bottom bracket (check out the red speck on the first screengrab).It should be an interesting race with the new Atherton bike being raced for the first time as well as World Cup regulars such as Danny Hart, Phil Atwill, Jack Reading and the Commencal team all putting tyres to dirt. Stay tuned for the results after the weekend.
