IBDs star and scar on ‘Dale vid

Earlier this month Camp Cannondale was held in Gran Canaria and hosted IBDs from the UK, Spain, Germany, Italy, France, Holland, Scandinavia, and Belgium, plus a distributor from Slovenia.

The event – videoed for posterity here – was the launch pad for two new All Mountain bikes, the Rize and Moto.

IBDs from the UK included Evans Cycles, Leisure Lakes, Primera Sports, Bike Chain, Cycleways, Rocky Mountain Cycles, Alpine Bikes, Edinburgh Bike Co-op, Chelmer Cycles, Sowerby Bros, and Wheelbase.

Alex Croucher of Primera won the “sacred stitch” award for his upper-lip injury.

At the end of the video, Neil Watts from Addiktion Cycles gave his views on the bikes.

He liked them.
