After a nasty crash during the 2014 Cyclocross National Championships in the 17-18 race at Valmont Park in Boulder, Emma White was looking to bounce back for a strong 2014-15 season. An even worse crash at Ellison Park’s C1 Full Moon Vista Race caused her to miss out on the bulk of the season. To cap it off, White needed to do some last minute rescheduling along with the rest of the athletes as her race was postponed and compressed with three other fields.
White was on something of an unlucky streak, but all of that changed when the Junior Women’s Cyclocross National Championships in Austin got underway.
Emma White roared through the course, taking the holeshot and winding her way through the Junior Men’s field. Today we take a look at the bike she raced to help get her to a win.
White, a development member of Cannondale Cyclocrossworld, races on a Cannondale SuperX with hints of color that match her black and red uniform. The bike comes stock with Cannondale’s Hollowgram Si crankarm, and White used the tried and true 46/36 double chainring setup with a SRAM Force 22 drivetrian and Avid Shorty Ultimate cantilever brakes.
Like many riders racing on either Saturday or Monday at Nationals, White opted for the mud specific tires, the Challenge Limus tubulars, to pair with her Zipp 303 Firecrest wheels. Her cockpit and seatpost are also Zipp products (Service Course SL), with the seatpost employing the 20mm setback.
