Cannondale Individual Athlete Summit
Roads in the Santa Monica Mountains are twisted strings of steep ascents and descents, a handful made of dirt. There are no straight shots. No easy gradients. And no shortage of variety. They carve through brown desert mountains down to blue coastal waters, past million-dollar homes and llama farms, and on them roll pristine Ferrari's and rusted VW Buses, leather-clad bikers and lycra-clad cyclists.
