Henrique Avancini's Scalpel HT for the XCO World Cup Albstadt 2022
The Albstadt XCO World Cup is one of the few events where the majority of riders choose a hardtail MTB over a full suspension.
And Brazil's Henrique Avancini, the last time he raced a hardtail was 4 years ago, has finally opted to race the new Cannondale Scalpel HT for this 2022 edition.
Avancini chooses a hardtail to race 4 years later
The Cannondale Scalpel HT was introduced in late 2021 as a new generation hardtail MTB. Its modern geometry combines well with the stiffness and power transmission it offers. A perfect bike for a less technical course like Albstadt.
