CDale CFR Team Baggy Short

We’ll admit that we’ve been a little snobby in the past about making sure we’re wearing high end tight shorts or bibs when racing our mountain bikes (well, some of us anyway), but that may have to change after we watched the opening World Cup cross country mountain bike race of the 2014 season.  Here’s the highlight reel:

Did you spot Manuel Fumic, who finished 2nd, wearing some Cannondale baggies?  If he can beat all but one person in the world on one of the most technical cross country courses anywhere who are we to say you can’t wear baggies at a local race?  We’ve been humbled.

In honour of Fumic (well really it’s just a coincidence) we just stocked the very same shorts he was wearing in the video above in our shop, pictured below.  Check them and other baggies out anytime. Prices range from about $65 to $150.  The trails are going to dry out soon!
