Cannondale’s 2003 products at INTERMOT show in Germany

Cannondale will be exhibiting their 2003 motorcycles and ATVs at the INTERMOT show in Munich (Germany) from September 18 to September 20. The company will occupy booth #641 in hall B2 at INTERMOT, which is Europe’s largest annual motorsports show.



“We’re very excited to officially introduce our motorsports products in Europe,” said Saskia Stock, Vice President of Marketing for Cannondale’s European subsidiary. “INTERMOT will give European motorsports dealers their first chance to see our entire 2003 line, and it will give us an opportunity to sign dealers and generate orders.”



The company’s Cannibal ATV was named the industry’s “Best Sport ATV” by ATV magazine earlier this year, and its Speed 440 won the 2002 ATV 4-Stroke World Championships.



Cannodale’s secret weapon is its “field-tunable” GP Control electronic fuel-injection, which delivers superior performance, eliminates the need to rejet the engine for air temperature or altitude changes, and allows for chokeless starting.



Also, Cannondale motors have a “brain” that monitors air pressure, air temperature, coolant temperature, rpm and throttle position to deliver the correct amount of fuel and proper ignition timing for maximum power.





European dealers interested in learning more about Cannondale’s off-road motorcycles and ATVs prior to the show can contact the company by e-mail at [email protected] or phone +31 541 573 580. U.S. dealers can call 1 877 DLR MOTO



First race of the FIM SuperMoto World Championship

First race of the FIM SuperMoto World Championship

Namur, BELGIUM: An excited crowd of 12,000 fans gathered for the start of the new FIM SuperMoto World Championship “S1” at the famous Citadelle circuit.



French rider Thierry Van Den Bosch, riding a KTM, dominated the weekend.



FIM President, Francesco Zerbi, was delighted by the show and expressed his belief for the success of this series. Additionally, Giuseppe Luongo, President of Youthstream said “I am extremely happy about the great start of our World Championship. It was an unbelievable job to prepare everything, to talk to the Organizers, to the Manufactures, to the Teams and Riders, to the Television and Media and to the Sponsors. Many believed that it would not work, but today we proved that anything is possible when you are 100% committed. I would like to thank all my staff for the hard work they have done as well as the FIM for their support, especially President Zerbi and CMS President Wolfgang Srb.”



The city of Namur, still the biggest name in Motocross, added another chapter to the history book of motor sport. Now the Citadelle will also be known as a prime SuperMoto track.



The teams and riders were delighted with the high organisational standard which they have not been used to in the past. Mr. Luongo continues, “I was always used to working in a most professional way since I started to promote races some 19 years ago. When I got involved in SuperMoto I had just one target – to put on the best show for the fans, riders and manufacturers. I believe we are heading in the right direction.”



The next round of the FIM SuperMoto World Championship will be held on the 25th of August at the Eurocircuit in Valkenswaard, Holland.
