Cannondale Factory Team adds two more WN users!

You have to love it when you help racers to get to the factory level. Both Ben Sonntag & Alex Grant join Cannondale team, both use WN.

Cannondale Factory Racing announced two additional signings just in time for this weekend's opening round of the US Pro XCT in Fontana, California. The team's existing riders, Jeremiah Bishop and Tinker Juarez, who are fresh off of a dominating performance in last weekend's Vision Quest race, will be reinforced by rising cross country and marathon talents Benjamin Sonntag and Alex Grant.

Sonntag, 29, is based in Durango, Colorado, and hails from Willingen, Germany. His best results with the WN in 2009 include fifth place in the German cross country national championship and a pair of 2nd place finishes at the challenging La Ruta de los Conquistadores.

Grant, also 29, and a WN'er finished 4th at last year's Leadville 100 and 2nd overall at La Ruta de los Conquistadors. He lives in Salt Lake City, Utah, and is originally from Richmond, Vermont.

Both riders previously raced with Bishop and Juarez on the WN fitted MonaVie / Cannondale team in 2009.
