Donnelly debuted their new carbon C//C cyclocross bikes back at the start of summer together with the G//C gravel ahead of the Dirty Kanza. Well racing has shifted to cross, so it’s time to roll out the new CX bike – the special edition Amy D Blue to be raced by their own pro team. With proceeds going to support the Amy D Foundation
Donnelly C//C carbon cyclocross bike, Amy D Blue edition
Donnelly’s Pro Cyclocross team will toe the start line for the first time this weekend on Sept 8 in Rochester, NY aboard the new baby blue bike. Their small, but experienced team will race the full domestic pro circuit on the new carbon bikes, plus of course Donnelly’s tires.
The team is set to race this year on special ‘Amy D Blue’ editions of the new C//C bike both to carry on the “strong, determined, funny and happy” legacy of the late Amy Dombroski, but also to help raise money for the Amy D Foundation. A portion of the sale of each Amy D Blue frameset or complete bike will go straight to the Foundation to further the encouragement & support of you women through cycling.
The new Donnelly C//C carbon cyclocross bike sells for $2000 for the frameset, or in complete bike builds for $3000 or $4000 depending on their spec. The bikes are available now though a select global bike shop network, or directly from Donnelly’s webshop.
Earlier this week Donnelly announced that they will also be supporting the Amy D Foundation developmental cycling program, by providing Amy D Blue framesets and tires for the developing racers.
Besides racing the just revealed C//C bikes, the Donnelly team also looks set to be some of the first to compete on the new sei-wireless FSA K-Force WE electronic groupset. It will be interesting how the new groupset proves itself as weather deteriorates throughout cyclocross season and the mud thickens.
