Actually looks like he was on Wetscreams front & back in qualifying.

I'd be inclined to guess it's a Canyon, based on the Acros headset and seat clamp area... And its in Germany

agreed. cube-ishness to it. here's danny's cube DH bike. seat mast/clamp look similar enough, as does the general link aesthetics.

It's got the cube seat tube, and the rocker looks like the cube DH bike.

That Cannondale looks great. If they follow the pattern of reusing old names then they might call it the Prophet.

I'm about to go shred on my updated "gen 1".

Rocker link definitely looks like a Cube; same suspension layout as well so that's my best guess

It’s being called the Jekyll, it’s been in the dealer catalog since early 2021

In the post race interview I believe he talks about switching to dry tires...

Proto definitely looks to be a cube. Full 1.5 headtube , longish link and burley seat/chainstay point to 170 or 180 rear travel

Cool. I like the Jekyll name and it'll keep things easy-ish when I need parts specific to the Prophet.

Looking at the pic, the carrier arms look to be offset a bit or at least darker on every second one of them too.

Yea, that's an interesting illusion. There's that 3rd facet at the rotor edge that makes one side brighter too. Can seem like it's a thicker 2 piece, but it's could also be one piece, with colored arms and a rounded edge.

Wilson on Magic Marys for finals. Weren't they testing proto Bontragers?

They are probably just a large version of Sram's Paceline brake rotors that came out with the new ETAP road group set

Did you photoshop that vital logo on so that when PB steals it they will get called out?

Nice bike, but not BMC's suspension system.

This looks very fitting. Are the black arms machined off thinner or just painted? They appear to be thinner?

They are both

'Machined' and 'just painted'? :D

I'm guessing machined and painted, so not 'just painted', which is the way I meant to ask if the contrast is there just from the paint, with not thickness difference.

Considering how burly it will be it should have been named Perp if they wanted to bring back an old name.

Matt Jones latest video of the Madeira Enduro has a segment with his brother Jono chasing Clementz on one of the new Cannondale HP bikes. You can’t see much, and, of course Jerome is a masterful bike handler so he makes it look super good. Here’s a screen grab, nothing we haven’t seen before. Also, Jerome is getting a bit chubby , nice to see that he is human after all 😂. Photo
