After successful seasons racing from New England all the way to Europe, both Cooper Willsey and Austin Vincent were selected by USA Cycling to represent their country in the 2014 World Championships in Hoogerheide, NED.

This trip, however, comes at quite an expense to the riders and their families. After traveling around the globe (Cincinnati, Louisville, Belgium, Italy, Boulder) to meet the qualification requirements, they are now faced with more fees and travel expenses to compete in their ultimate goal, the World Championships.

Stu Thorne ( has offered to support these youngsters in their cyclocross endeavors by donating two 2013 Cantilever Cannondale SuperX Hi-Mod Frames to this fund raising raffle. One is a like-new, 52cm Frame/Fork/Headset combo and the other is a brand-new, 54 cm Frame/Fork/Headset combo.

These are the green/black paint schemes the Cannondale p/b Pro Team raced on last season, but they are built for cantilever brakes.

How does it work?

Simple: For each dollar you donate, you will receive one raffle ticket for the frame/size of your choosing. $1 donation = 1 raffle ticket. $50 donation = 50 raffle tickets.

We thank you for your support and wish you luck in the drawing!
