Giacomo Angeli is the head mechanic of the Cannondale Factory Racing XC Team. Here’s a look at the tools and spares he takes to each race.
Mechanics are pretty much the beating heart of every mtb team. Without them, things would just stop working. Luckily for us (and you), they’re also all incredibly cool, plus they have plenty of great hacks and tricks that they’re only too happy to share.
Giacomo is head mechanic for Cannondale Factory Racing and works on the bikes of riders like Marco Aurelio Fontana, Manuel Fumic and Anton Cooper. Cannondale bikes require a bunch of specific spares, so Giacomo carries all of those with him. The coolest thing? He brings Cannondale’s SI (System Integration) idea over to his toolkit, with one tool handling loads of jobs; something that’s definitely worth considering for your own toolkit.
