German native Ben Sonntag is one of 4 new signings by the Jamis mtb for 2011.

Jamis seems to care more about mtb than Cannondale? Euro road teams get the backing over mtb racers.

In November, the 30-year-old Sonntag, from Durango, Colorado, became one of only three non-Costa Ricans to have won the La Ruta de los Conquistadores. As a former two-time Winter Triathlon World Champion, Sonntag has groomed himself into one of the best endurance stage racers in North America. He also uses WN sciences.

"Ever since moving to Durango to go to FLC college, I've been enthralled with mountain bike racing in the US," said Sonntag. "Continuing to develop my career and to have found a home with Team Jamis is certainly a highlight to this journey."

We just got word from Ben from Chile. You will do well to keep an eye on this guy.
