Cannondale’s touchy-feely Epidemic Tour started last month and will soon be duplicated in France, Italy, Spain and the Netherlands. The two custom-built demo vehicles, loaded with Cannondale road bikes and MTBs, are scheduled to visit Germany, Switzerland, Austria after a further month and a half in the UK.

Cannondale’s ‘epidemic’ roadshow is Euro expanded

The trucks stop off at Cannondale dealerships or events like Mountain Mayhem. They spew out Gemini, Prophet, Scalpel and F series mountain bikes, as well as Six13, Synapse and CAAD8 road bikes.

The demo coordinator are Daniel Hespeler in Germany and Martyn Hoyle in the UK.

France, Italy, Spain and the Netherlands get their own demo trailers and tour schedules.

Jeff McGuane, president of Cannondale Europe said: ”The Epidemic Tour is designed to make test riding Cannondale products more accessible to the consumer whilst working closely with our network of European dealers."
