Mario Cipollini’s Custom Aero Cannondale Track
One of a kind, custom-made, aero-tubing Cannondale Track made for the indomitable Mario Cipollini circa 1999. Serial number: “CIPOL”. Most of the “track” frames built for him used traditional round tubes and were ridden on the road in the off-season to improve pedal stroke and efficiency. Most of the round tube track frames still had mounts for a rear brake and water bottles. This aero track frame saw actual use on the track, since it was built without brake or water bottle mounts and it boasts sponsor decals (including Campagnono which was unusual for Saeco). The frame was designed in the CAD software Pro Engineer in Bethel, CT and then the tubes were laser cut to Cipollini’s specific geometry at the Cannondale factory in Bedford, PA. The frame was then welded, heat treated, and painted in that same facility. A true piece of historic American craftsmanship and Italian racing history. Go Team Saeco!
